[A] devastating refutation of ID nonsense in all its forms.-Reports of the National Center for Science EducationThe objections Perakh aims at [William] Dembski's many works constitute probably the best critique of those views I have ever read....The book is a very good reference to have merely for [this critique].-Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith[A] well-designed book; Perakh has taken aim at a dozen or more targets ... and skewered them all.-Skeptical InquirerPhysicist Mark Perakh critically reviews recent trends toward harmonizing religion and science. From intelligent design theories to arguments allegedly proving the compatibility of biblical stories with scientific data and Bible codes containing secret messages, Perakh shows that, however sophisticated in appearance, all such approaches are little more than tailoring evidence to fit the desired theory.Beginning with the design theorists, Perakh provides a detailed critique of the publications of William Dembski, Michael Behe, and Phillip Johnson. In each case he clearly demonstrates lack of substantiation, internal contradictions, and multiple fallacies that mar their works.In Part Two he critiques the mental acrobatics of various Christian and Jewish writers whose works attempt to prove such unlikely propositions as: the inerrancy of the Bible, the harmony of the Torah and science, the duration of the six days of creation, and deriving a theory of nonrandom evolution from the Talmud.Part Three describes how genuine science is conducted, what the laws of science actually mean to practicing scientists, and what distinguishes real science from pseudoscience.In conclusion, Perakh discusses the rise and fall of the so-called Bible code as an example of how well-marketed pseudoscience can successfully cloak itself in the mantle of science.For everyone interested in separating scientific facts from the hype of trendy theories about science, this book is must reading.Mark Perakh is a prize-winning professor emeritus of physics at California State University at Fullerton and the author of four books and nearly 300 scientific articles.
