Review of Jonathan Wells’s New Book Zombie Science (Part 1)

May, 2019

Jonathan Wells, noted intelligent design advocate and author of the influential book Icons of Evolution, 1 has published a sequel entitled Zombie Science: More Icons of Evolution (Fig. 1). 2 In Icons, Wells showed how alleged evidences for macroevolution such as the Miller-Urey experiments, Darwin’s tree of life, industrial melanism of peppered moths, the horse fossil record, Haeckel’s embryos, Darwin’s finches, Archaeopteryx, and many others had been disproved or even exposed as frauds. The subject of his new book is how disproved evidences for macroevolution are nevertheless still being taught and hence have become Zombie Science. Wells revisits the icons he discussed in his previous book and then discusses new ones. This review will touch upon the more important points brought out in the book. Wells, who has his doctorate in molecular and cell biology, is a good writer with a keen command of his subject. He writes clearly and concisely with penetrating insight and a sense of humor.

Creation and the Problem of Evil

April, 2019

Perhaps the most frequent argument used by skeptics against the Christian faith is that a good, loving, and all-powerful God wouldn't possibly allow evil (along with sorrow, pain, bloodshed, etc.) into his world. Evil obviously exists in our world. It is all around us. Thus, the biblical God can’t possibly exist. If he did, and he was indeed omnipotent, he would obviously do something about it! It is not only skeptics, however, who struggle with this “problem of evil.” The Christian who shares his faith will find that this question probably causes more people to doubt the validity of the Bible and the Christian faith than any other. This author, based only on his own anecdotal experiences, would argue that it is a greater stumbling block to people than is even the creation-evolution debate. Therefore, the Christian must be prepared to explain the existence of evil. Fortunately, within the Christian worldview it is possible to do just that. Outside the Christian worldview, it is not. There are no adequate explanations for evil in other worldviews.
