Or buy one second hand. Second hand books don’t bring money to the authors.
However, I may still save you the trouble.
I’ve started reading it and–so far–I haven’t seen anything different or unique that seperates it from any of the other Christian conspiracy books that I’m aware of.
Just keep in mind that I’m 10% finished (according to the Kindle tally in the app), but all I’ve seen is:
- Evolution must be false because life can’t happen just from chance.
- A belief in science and evolution precludes morality and ethics.
- A belief in the biological consequences of evolution is responsible for the moral corruption, war, crime, and drug addiction that we see today.
- If this situation isn’t corrected, then civilization will inevitably collapse.
While these are all ideas that we have repeatedly debunked ad nauseum, there was one interesting idea that is rather novel . . . at least to me.
She points out that any machine is designed with a purpose. A car engine has the purpose of moving a car, and to use it for something else–like an anvil to forge horse shoes–would damage or destroy it.
In a like manner, our conscience, our sense of right and wrong, our capacity to love . . . is a fundemental part of our design, just as the fundemental purpose of a car engine is to move a car. So, this capacity for love and altruism is part of our Godly design, so to go against this value is like using a car engine for an anvil.
A belief in evolution does not adequately explain altruism and love, so evolution–by definition–is automatically insufficient for explaining the existence of human life.
I saw the fallacies in her arguments right away, as even beings as lowly as ants, termites, and bees nurture and care for each other. Insects even practice self-sacrifice for the greater good of the colony.
Never mind orcas, apes, dolphins, and many other animals that practice more elaborate forms of altruism.
In any case, I’m only about 10% through the book, so I’ll get back to you guys with a more thorough review later.
