The Total Novice's Guide To Evolution, Creation & Intelligent Design 

This Guide is a comprehensive examination and comparison of classical evolution, biblical creation and modern intelligent design theories.  Short histories of these three theories are presented and the importance of DNA/RNA is reviewed in summary.  Evolutionary theory is presented beginning from the creation of the solar system through homo sapiens (humans). 

 

Classical creation theory and history are presented according to biblical and Koranic testaments.  In the chapter "Creationism's Counterpoimt," Harun Yahya, an Islamic creationist, examines historical evidence and claims that evolutionary history is not true.  Yahya argues that archeological evidence points in favor of creationism. Numerous classical paintings by artists (Brueghal, Michelangelo, Bosch, Cranach, Durer, etc.) supporting creation theory  are presented.

Did you know that there are two separate theories of intelligent design? "Theory A" suggests that homo sapiens (humans) were designed by an intelligent agent or creator, and that the agent was God.  "Theory B" suggests that homo sapiens were designed by an intelligent agent and that the agent was a higher (i.e., extraterrestrial) intelligence.  Both theories ("Theory A" and "Theory B") are presented and compared.

 

How will humanity evolve from here?  Multiple scenarios of future human development are proposed by experts in the field of human evolution and compared.

Parental guidance: PG (ages 10+; due to depictions of nudity).  Includes: extensive footnotes, appendices, word search feature, glossary and references.
