      This is an interesting resource regarding the creationism-evolution "debate." It might usefully be read in conjunction with Eugenie Scott's "Evolution vs. Creationism," which provides quotations from major works from each sphere, to allow readers to compare arguments. This book has a perspective: it contends that standard arguments by creationists and intelligent design advocates are off the mark. I would doubt that creationists/intelligent design advocates would even read this. However, it migh [...]

      Very useful if you are an debate lover. Whoever decided to make this book was a genius. It has everything you need, in almost every scientific field to logically battle the unlogical mind of creationists. But sadly most of it is in vain considering the closemindedness of most creationist, they will just retort with something that they "interpreted" in the bible and it will be like arguing with a brick.If you like this book another good one is Evolution and the Myth of Creationism. It's written b [...]

      This book is an ideal "practical" companion to a more philosophical treatment of the creation-evolution "controversy," such as Michael Shermer's Why Darwin Matters. A reference work by design (heh-heh), it comprises an extensive collection of short answers to all the common creationist fallacies, and quite a few unusual ones. Each entry cites several references for further exploration (the bibliography takes up the last quarter of the book!). The Handbook is well organized into major areas of in [...]

      A very in depth and handy book to have when debating someone of the religious persuasion. While it doesn't exactly read as a novel and more of a "go to" research book, it was still engrossing.I've found myself on many occasions in a discussion/debate online and reaching for this book. Mark Isaak did a good job bringing together all the usual arguments against science and reason.

    5. Mark on said:

      I liked this book, it is a breakdown of all the science that counters the pseudo science and outright misrepresentations of creation arguments.

    6. Chad on said:

      Excellent book. Very well organised with many references. Answers the majority of questions brought up by Creationists.

      Counter-Creationism Handbook / 978-0-520-24926-4I first encountered most of these counter-creationism arguments online, on the TalkOrigins website, and found all of the arguments to be well-reasoned, superbly researched, and very helpful. I was happy to buy this companion volume (which documents most, but not all, of the online material) in order to have a handy hard-copy reference available around the house.I cannot help but be very grateful to this book and its authors because I must confess t [...]

      A Handy Guide To Rebutting Creationist Objections To Valid Mainstream ScienceWhile I believe that there are other, better books currently available which delve into the legal and philosophical issues presented by Intelligent Design and other flavors of creationism (e. g. books written by Scott, Forrest, Kitcher and Pennock), Mark Isaak has created a useful "handy-dandy" reference guide which offers a succinct rejoinder to every absurd creationist claim, covering a wide spectrum of subjects from [...]

      This book is very well described by its title. It is an encyclopedia collection of claims made by various creationist and intelligent design writers, together with brief responses from the scientific community. He truly covers all bases in this controversy.Isaak admits, in his introduction, that he doesn't expect a lot of readership from the creationist-intelligent design community, but he correctly points out that if anyone from this community (or anyone else, for that matter) thinks that they [...]

      I haven't read the book, but I've read the online compendium, which appears to be identical:talkorigins/indexcc/liBasically it's a thorough list of all young earth creationist arguments (or pretty much all of them anyway), each followed by a brief rebuttal. I used this resource as a diving off point back when I was dealing with these questions, and I highly recommend it as a starting point for anybody investigating YEC claims.

    11. Steve on said:

      I liked it! It's a great reference tool that enables you to summarize your thoughts and generalizations about evolution in a coherent manner. It is written in a helpful format whereby you can search for a particular topic you want to learn more about and read just that snippet of information. Highly recommend.

    12. Thomas A Wiebe on said:

      Excellent. Use as a reference to research Creationist and Intelligent Design claims regarding the Theory of Evolution. Well-organized, complete, and carefully argued. The source of all assertions are fully documented.
