The Counter-Creationism Handbook
Those opposed to the teaching of evolution often make well-rehearsed claims about the science that <i>sound </i>powerful and convincing. And many people who support the teaching of evolution--students, teachers, parents, administrators--do not have the background to respond. They know that scientists have thoroughly dismantled these arguments, but they don't have a handy way of responding to these attacks. <i>The Counter-Creationism Handbook </i>is a one-stop resource for addressing over 400 of the most prevalent claims made by creationists. Each claim is followed by a succinct and scientifically valid rebuttal, and the book includes print and on-line resources for further reading and information. <br><i>The Counter-Creationism Handbook:</i><br>¥ Covers claims made about the disciplines of philosophy, biology, paleontology, geology, astronomy, physics and mathematics, history, and more.<br>¥ Addresses the claims of Biblical creationism, intelligent design creationism, and some creationism based on non-Christian religions.<br>¥ Includes an introduction on how to address creationists in different venues, how to deal with novel claims, and why accurate science is important.<br>¥ Is organized thematically, with extensive cross-referencing.
