The back cover of the Australian edition says,
"can any scientist with a PhD believe in the idea of a literal six day creation?
in six days answers that provacative question. In this book, 50 scientists from around the world say 'Yes"! Taking a factual and scientific look at the evidence for evolution, physicists, biologists and chemists come to some disturbing and revealing conclusions. In their estimation, evolution may offer no more evidence than traditional religion and, factually, it may lag behind.
Important questions about the Big Bang Theory, radioactive dating of rocks, light from distant stars, and the fossil evidence for evolution are discussed in detail. These essays examine the entire approach to science education, and are essential reading for educators, politicians, parents and students.
in six days opens the evolution versus creation debate to a wider public -- not with narrow and closed arguments but with a straightforward and wide ranging analysis of the issues confronting both the scientific community and the general public.
This is a must read book for all thinking people."
In 2001 publication was taken over by Master Books in the USA, producing a book with a slightly greater page number. Unfortunately, neither the original nor the reprint have an index in the rear to identify which topics were discussed by the various authors.
The back cover of the Master Books edition says,
in six days
Why would any educated, self-respecting scientist with a PhD advocate a literal interpretation of the six days of creation? Why, indeed, when only one in three Americans believes "the Bible is the actual word of God and is to be taken literally, word for word" according to a recent Gallup poll.
Science can neither prove nor disprove evolution anymore than it can creation. Certainly there are no human eyewitness accounts of either. However, certain factors are present today which are capable of swaying one's beliefs one way or the other.
In this book are the testimonies of fifty men and women holding doctorates in a wide range of scientific fields who have been convinced by the evidence to believe in a literal six-day creation. For example, meet:
- The geneticist who concludes that there must have been 150 billion forerunners of "modern man" in order for the natural selection required by evolution to have taken place in the development of man. The evidence for such vast numbers of "prehistoric man" is in dire shortage.
- The orthodontist who discovered that European museum fossils of ancient man have been tampered with to adhere to evolution theories.
- The geologist who studied under Stephen Jay Gould and literally cut the Bible to pieces before totally rejecting evolution.
All fifty of these scientists, through faith and scientific fact, have come to the conclusion that God's Word is true and everything had its origin not so very long ago, in the beginning, In Six Days.
THIS IS A MUST-READ BOOK FOR ALL THINKING PEOPLE.
