|Darwin’s Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution, 10th Anniversary Edition
By Michael J. Behe
In 1996, Darwin’s Black Box helped to launch the intelligent design movement: the argument that nature exhibits evidence of design, beyond Darwinian randomness. It sparked a national debate on evolution, which continues to intensify across the country. From one end of the spectrum to the other, Darwin’s Black Box has established itself as the key intelligent design text — the one argument that must be addressed in order to determine whether Darwinian evolution is sufficient to explain life as we know it.In a major new Afterword for this edition, Behe explains that the complexity discovered by microbiologists has dramatically increased since the book was first published. That complexity is a continuing challenge to Darwinism, and evolutionists have had no success at explaining it. Darwin’s Black Box is more important today than ever.
|Icons of Evolution: Science or Myth?
By Jonathan Wells
Our children’s’ science textbooks are replete with inaccurate information about evolution. Even if you believe evolution to be a working theory, this book will enlighten you to many fallacies put forth in modern day classrooms – fallacies that have been proven wrong, inaccurate, or simply inappropriate as proof. Using non-Christian, non-religious language, and supporting himself with information gleaned from myriad sources (many from evolutionists themselves refuting the erroneousexamples) he breathes fresh air into the arguments against what is being taught and gives voice to those who strive for the teaching of truth in our schools.
Covering all the major ‘pillars’ of evolution chosen by evolutionists (at one time or another, and now perpetuated by the textbooks’ authors) as exemplary, Dr. Wells walks the reader through the proposition of each paradigm, inherent problems in the model, and attempts to resolve the issue. The issues covered here are the Miller-Urey experiment, Darwin’s tree of life, the apparent homology of vertebrate limbs, Haeckel’s embryos, the archaeopteryx, peppered moths, Darwin’s finches, four-winged fruit flies, fossil horses as evidence of directed evolution, and the ape-to-apeman-to-man evolutionary progression model.
The author also provides over 50 pages of his research notes, a critical review of ten modern biology textbooks as concerns the topics in this book, and 10 ‘warning labels’ that can be used in address the errors by affixing them to the texts (provided the texts are ones personal property).
|The Edge of Evolution: The Search for the Limits of Darwinism
By Michael J. Behe
Defining Darwinian evolution as simply natural selection with random mutations, Behe clearly illustrates the flaws in such a theory. A pillar of the Intelligent Design movement, Behe has penned a worthy sequel to his phenomenally successful Darwin’s Black Box, still working in an old-earth framework to point out the still-impossible model of non-theistic evolution. Being careful to delineate the elements and theoretical scope of Darwin’s idea, Behe dissembles it to show what it can and cannot do. In so doing, he champions theistic evolution and helps flesh out Intelligent Design in a conversational way that anyone interested in the controversy will find accessible.
|Science and Faith: Friends or Foes? – eBook
By C. John Collins
|Intelligent Design Uncensored: An Easy-to-Understand Guide to the Controversy
By William A. Dembski & Jonathan Witt
Intelligent design is surrounded by a storm of debate. Proponents and opponents have both sought to have their voices heard above the din.
Is it unscientific? Is it a danger to real Christian faith? Is it trying to smuggle God into the classroom?
Controversy can create confusion rather than clarity. So here to clear things up is Bill Dembski, one of the founders of intelligent design, who joins with Jonathan Witt to answer these questions and more. In Intelligent Design: Uncensored They plainly lay out just what intelligent design is and is not. They answer objections with straight talk that is down to earth.
You’ll be surprised at how often smart people have misrepresented ID. You might be surprised to see exactly how they respond to what turns out to be misleading arguments.
|Darwin on Trial
By Phillip Johnson
Is Darwin’s theory of evolution really the settled fact experts insist it is? Johnson, a Berkeley law professor specializing in logic, dissects Darwinism’s scientific support and finds it woefully short on logic and severely lacking in confirmatory evidence. This rigorous—yet readable!—book is a great introduction to the controversy over evolution. 195 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.
|Defeating Darwinism by Opening Minds (Paperback)
By Phillip Johnson
What’s the best way to discern and defeat the false claims of Darwinism? By developing solid critical-thinking skills, says Johnson. His non-technical discussion of Darwinism versus creationism gives you sound advice on spotting deceptive arguments, grasping scientific issues, understanding the impact of the Scopes trial, and more. Ideal for high school students, teachers, pastors, or anyone concerned about the creation-evolution debate. 132 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.
|The Case against Darwin Why the Evidence Should Be Examined
By James Perloff
There is powerful scientific evidence against Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. And the implications are momentous, because ever since publication of The Origin of Species in 1859, evolution has been contesting man’s traditional ideas about the meaning of life. Now, however, it’s Darwin who’s on the retreat, as facts from diverse branches of science challenge the theory’s validity. In his popular book Tornado in a Junkyard, James Perloff examined that evidence in detail. Now, for the busy reader, he takes you on a mini-tour of: The Case Against Darwin.
