I recently had the opportunity to view the recently released documentary, Against the Tide narrated by Kevin Sorbo from the first God’s Not Dead film and featuring Dr. John Lennox of Oxford. I say documentary but I’m not sure what exactly to call it. It was equal parts hagiography of Lennox, and documentary of how atheism’s arguments against God can be answered. However the answers were poor, because Lennox was the one giving them.
I feel like I need to review this book twice: once for the content and once for self-righteous, egotistical tone of the book. The content is not bad, but the snide comments, personal attacks, and general egotism of the author make the book a slog to get through and limit its usefulness.
We are constantly told that evolution can build the genome over time, through chance mutations favored by natural selection. But what if this claim is false? What if the genome is not improving? What if, instead, it is actually degrading over time? Further, what if the scientific community has known this for decades and refuses to acknowledge it because of the damage it would do to evolution? Welcome to the premise of Dr. John Sanford’s book, Genetic Entropy. In the book, Sanford, a former evolutionist and emeritus professor at Cornell University looks at whether evolution, the “primary axiom” as he terms it, can work, using population genetics.
We were fortunate enough to watch the new creation documentary Dismantled over its free weekend last week. As such, we thought it was appropriate to review the film here. It has its good and bad points, but overall, its is a solid addition to any creationist’s library.
