Customer Review

on 24 December 2009
This excellent book, although written to respond to Denis Alexander's book titled Creation or Evolution, does an excellent job responding to the claim that no conflict exists between Christianity and Darwinism. Nevin documents that the conflict is at the fundamental level of Christianity. Unfortunately, many Churches have sided with Darwinism, repeating the mistake that the Catholic church made with Galileo. Then, as now, all to often the church sides with orthodox science because they trust the "authorities". In Galileo's day orthodox science was Ptolemaic astronomy. When Galileo presented evidence against establishment science, the church sided with orthodox science and opposed Galileo, and many churches are doing the same today by siding with Darwinism. Many people today claim that you can "believe in both, and no conflict exists." First of all, as the authors of this book show, an enormous major conflict exists between the two worldviews. Second, there is no point tying to harmonize Christianity, Judaism, or Islam with Darwinism until Darwinism has been proven true. Since the preponderance of evidence, as this work documents, is against Darwinism, to side with Darwinism now is premature if not irresponsible. One of the best chapters in this book is the one on the fossil record, but the chapter on the chromosomal fusion theory is excellent as well (my field is biology, so this interests me). The whole evolution-theology issue is addressed in 220 pages by university professors and reputable scholars. Religiously the authors and/or references are Catholics, agnostics, protestants and others. It covers both theology and science and shows clearly that Darwinism negates both the core of, and the basic doctrines of, Christianity. Although the book focuses on the British situation and controversy, I hope this book will be available in the USA as well. The book shows that the controversy over Darwinism and scientism has now reached beyond America.
