Darwinian Religion Versus the Faith of Our Fathers
Author: Keith Simpson
In this consideration of religious and scientific beliefs, Keith Simpson offers a provocative challenge to Darwinian thinking through conversations with a close friend. "An important tool for parenting and college preparation. Having taught on all levels of academia, I am convinced that it takes great wisdom to take complex and sophisticated issues and present them in a way that the non-expert can comprehend and evaluate. Simpson has done a masterful job of synthesizing, exposing, and presenting-in an understandable and engaging way for our evaluation-the embedded philosophies of Darwinism that intertwine our cultural thinking." -David P. Ferreira, Ph.D. "Keith Simpson provides an enjoyable and highly personal account of how respectful and well-informed interactions with atheists can change hearts and minds for the better." -Casey Luskin, Discovery Institute
