Summary and Info
I'd put off buying and reading this book for years, reasoning that it was published in 2004, and therefore out of date. I bought it only because a reader on another review referred to a scientist I'd never heard of, and "googling" his name brought up mainly references on creationist websites, and also a reference to him in "Creationism's Trojan Horse", which was the sole reason why I bought this book.
Actually, the book is just as up to date as when it was published, but only because Intelligent Design proponents are making exactly the same arguments that Young Earth Creationists such as Henry Morris were making 40 years ago. The only difference is that the current creationists have stripped out their brand of religion from their arguments (except when they are addressing their natural constituency of fundamentalist Christians).
A very enjoyable (if a book describing the nightmare scenario that the the financial supporters of ID appear to be wanting to impose on America can ever be described as "enjoyable") and engrossing book.
