Get Smart, Get this book

One exciting thing I've learned to appreciate about this blog over the last 5 years is that it has extraordinarially intelligent readers. You my friends are some seriously smart people.

For that reason I want to introduce you to a new book hitting the shelves and subsequently should hit your desk soon thereafter. This book is a thoughtful (finally!) take on creationism. Dr. DeWitt is uniquely qualified to speak on this subject as he is not simply a professor but a well respected microbiologist known for his work with Alzheimers research (Currently doing research under a grant sponsored by the National Institute of Health).

Dr. David Dewitt was one of my bilogy professors at Liberty University. I enjoyed the matter of fact tone he takes with biology. He encourages students not to be afraid of the debate and also not to bail out their ignorance with bible quotes. If you want to earn the respect of someone who is educated in science you should at least be able to speak their language. I'm not a scientist nor do I even love it but I have enjoyed earning respect of evolutionists for being able to discuss the issues with them. This book helps the reader do that and a little more.

Asked if there is any argument an evolutionist can make that a creationist cannot effectively answer, Dr. DeWitt smiled wryly and offered a simple, “No.”


“We have nothing to worry about in defending our beliefs,” he confidently stated.

So... I recommend to you, my wonderful highly IQ'd reader, "Unraveling The Origins Controversy" by Dr. David DeWitt.
