One of my favorite writings about scientific creation is done by Michael Shermer in his work, Genesis Revisited; A Scientific Creation Story. I was wondering what others thought of it?

Keep in mind, this is not written to replace the Genesis in the bible, but really to show how Genesis would be written in the language of modern day science.

I haven't read it all yet, but it's certainly refreshing to see that someone has their head screwed on right with Genesis. He's mocking, but it's amusing and I wasn't hoping for much better.

fooling about with drink and sex and
ambition when infinite joy is offered us,
like an ignorant child who wants to go on
making mud pies in a slum because he
cannot imagine what is meant by the offer
of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily
pleased."—C.S. Lewis, "The Weight of Glory"

Meh. I re-read it and realized it was still using YEC timeline. Blech.

Michal Shermer may be the worst debater ever.
One act of Rebellion created all the darkness and evil in the world; One life of Total Obedience created a path back to eternity and God.

A Scout is Obedient.

Shermer has been dismantled by Kent Hovind on a couple of occasions.
