Among the Creationists: Dispatches from the Anti-Evolutionist Front Line

Why achieve this many american citizens reject the trendy conception of evolution? Why does creationism, completely refuted by means of scientists, hold such attractiveness one of the public? Is the perceived clash among evolution and Christianity actual, or is it basically an phantasm abnormal to Protestant fundamentalism?

Seeking solutions to those questions, mathematician Jason Rosenhouse turned a standard attendee at creationist meetings and different gatherings. After ten years of attending occasions just like the gigantic construction Mega-Conference in Lynchburg, Virginia, and traveling websites just like the production Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, and after hundreds and hundreds of unusually pleasant conversations with creationists of various stripes, he has emerged with a narrative to inform, a narrative that is going way past the standard stereotypes of Bible-thumping lovers railing opposed to coldly rational scientists. via anecdotes, own reflections, and clinical and philosophical dialogue, Rosenhouse offers a extra down-to-earth photograph of contemporary creationism and the folk who espouse it. he's neither polemical nor insulting, yet he doesn't pull punches while he spots an errors within the logical or medical reasoning of creationists, in particular once they wander into his personal box, arithmetic. alongside the way in which, he additionally tells the tale of his personal nonbeliever's try to comprehend an immense element of yank faith. pressured to strive against together with his perspectives approximately God and evolution, Rosenhouse came across himself drawn right into a new global of principles formerly unknown to him, arriving at a sharper figuring out of the truth of science-versus-religion disputes, and the way those debates glance to these past the ivory tower.
