Defeating Darwinism


Defeating Darwinism

With all of the complicated debate swirling around the topic of evolution, is there an easy way to understand the basic issues without oversimplifying? Phillip Johnson says there is: the key to defeating the false claims of Darwinism is to open our minds to good thinking habits. Here is first-rate advice on avoiding common mistakes in discussion about evolution, understanding the legacy of the Scopes trial, spotting deceptive arguments, and grasping the basic scientific issues without getting bogged down in unnecessary details.

In the bestselling and critically acclaimed Darwin on Trial and Reason in the Balance, Phillip Johnson exposed the misleading claims of evolutionary naturalism. Defeating Darwinism provides a new and powerful treatment of these issues for high-school students, parents, teachers, pastors, youth advisors and ordinary readers. Johnson aims not just to defeat a bad theory, but to defeat it the right way – by opening minds to the truth.

“[Johnson’s] brilliant analysis shows how Darwinist assumptions underlie current controversies in ethics, law, education and public policy.” - CHARLES COLSON

Quickly cutting through the technical brush, Johnson goes straight to the logical foundations of the controversy and exposes the fallacies propping up the decaying edifice of Darwinism” - MICHAEL BEHE, author of Darwin’s Black Box

“Phillip Johnson is an author who is simply to be read, and closely studied, by all who wish to understand the forces that actually govern the intellectual world in the United States today.” - DALLAS WILLARD Professor of Philosophy, University of Southern California
