"Creation, on the other hand, is a scientific theory ..."
-- Henry Morris, _Remarkable Birth of Planet Earth_, p. iv
Hey, while looking for my old copy of _The_Phantom_Tollbooth_, I
found a copy of this book. The preface is by Morris and dated
September 1972. Here are the first two paragraphs (italics are
done *like this*):
This book has been written in order to give busy, but interested,
readers a brief summary of both Biblical and scientific reasons
for believing in creation instead of evolution. The origin and
early history of the earth and man is a marvelous and fascinating
story of God's great power and foresight, given by revelation in
the Bible and now strikingly confirmed bymodern science.
The theory of evolution has dominated our society, especially the
schools, for almost a hundred years, and its influence is largly
responsible for our present-day social, political, and moral problems.
Many people today, including scientists, are again examining the
creation-evolution question and often are amazed to find that
evolution is merely an unreasonable theory containing many scientific
fallacies. Creation, on the other hand, is a scientific theory which
*does* fit all the *facts* of true science, as well as God's
revelation in the Holy Scriptures.
To keep copyright watchers happy, I'll now review the book, making
my excerpt without permission legal, as it's part of a review:
It's the usual creationist nonsense.
The back even advertises two editions of _Scientific_Creationism_,
one "general" which includes biblical documentation, and one "public
school edition" which omits the bible quotes(!)
"Creationism isn't Christianity in disguise." Yeah, right.
Did you notice that evolutionary biologists are "evolutionists" while
Creationists are "creation scientists?" How funny!
