5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent essays, broad reaching..., 29 April 1999
By A Customer
Much better than the often psuedo-science essays of similar books (such as Sagan's Billions and Billions). Johnson cuts through the illogic of naturalism and relativism with the ease of a laser scapel. People whom read his works and still think fantasy writers like Dawkins are right, have abandoned all logic and rational methods.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent collection of highly readable essays, 9 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This book is a collection of short essays and book reviews that Johnson has written over the past few years, mostly revolving around Darwinism and science related topics. Since the publication of his first book "Darwin on Trial" Johnson has taken a lot of heat from the scientific community and others (see the book reviews on this sight) for his anti-Darwin stance. Here he shows that not only is he not impressed by the opposition's objections, but he continues to point out the flaws, problems,and inconsistencies plaguing scientific materialism and Darwinism. He also points out how many in the scientific community resort to bad logic, and even near deception in order to present Darwinism as plausible to the public. Some of my favorites are "A Metaphysics Lesson" which deals with the public schools and controversy over the teaching of Darwinism, "Wundergadfly" which discusses the life and thought of philosopher of science Paul Feyerabend, and "The Storyteller and the Scientist" which deals with the afformentioned way in which evolutionists must resort to near deception to make evolution appear true. The fact that these are all short essays and book reviews means that most of them can be read in a short time period, although, if you're like me, you will find you have a hard time putting this down.
