    Dr. Jonathan Sarfati

    A general critique of the most up-to-date arguments for evolution to challenge educators, students, and parents. Thus it provides a good summary of the arguments against evolution and for creation. It also exposes the flat earth myth and corrects misinformation about the Galileo affair.
