About this product
- DescriptionIn light of the embattled status of evolutionary theory, particularly as intelligent design makes headway against Darwinism in the schools and in the courts, this w classic account of the roots of creationism assumes new relevance. Expanded and updated to account for the appeal of intelligent design and the global spread of creationism, The Creationists offers a thorough, clear, and balanced overview of the arguments and figures at the heart of the debate. Praised by both creationists and evolutionists for its comprehensiveness, the book meticulously traces the dramatic shift among Christian fundamentalists from acceptance of the earth's antiquity to the insistence of present-day scientific creationists that most fossils date back to Noah's flood and its aftermath. Focusing especially on the rise of this flood geology , Ronald L. Numbers chronicles the remarkable resurgence of anti-evolutionism since the 1960s, as well as the creationist movement's tangled religious roots in the theologies of late-19th and early 20th Century Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and Adventists, among others. His book offers valuable insight into the origins of various creation science think tanks and the people behind them. It also goes a long way toward explaining how creationism, until recently viewed as a peculiarly American phemen, has quietly but dynamically spread internationally - and found its expression outside Christianity in Judaism and Islam.
