Built on a Very Fragile Foundation,
This review is from: Creation or Evolution: Do We Have to Choose? (Paperback)The framework of this entire book is based around an assumption that The Bible is the word of God and this is in itself evidence for his existence. How any scientist can expect respect after making such a claim is strange to say the least. The initial claim makes anything else written in the following pages seem worthless.

I read and enjoyed this book, appreciating the author's intention to reduce dogma in exploration of these issues. It seems that this reviewer is just another one who believes that dogma should prevail. Not helpful.

I think the reviewer's position is dogmatic - which may not be the same thing. It is especially unhelpful in that Denis Alexander at no point suggests that the Bible is "proof" for the existence of God.

I take it by this you are admitting you did not read the rest of the book.
Alexander's is a highly nuanced position, and he makes it very clear at the beginning that this is a book aimed at Christians who are by definition 'creationists' in one form or another.
Having declared this presupposition at the beginning, he is entirely free to build on it and see where it leads.

A farcical review which does nothing but highlight the ignorance and myopic mind-set of the writer

Great name for a radio station, strange name for a human being. JMO.44Now to your opinion.
Do you realise that, in a poll of members of the 'National Academy of Sciences' (the US equivalent of the British Royal Society), 7% of those who answered said that they believed in a PERSONAL God.
So unless you are some pretrty high-powered scientist, and you can prove that God doesn't exist, your assert looks pretty ill-considered. Innit?]
