Those opposed to the teaching of evolution often make well-rehearsed claims about the science that sound powerful and convincing. And many people who support the teaching of evolution--students, teachers, parents, administrators--do not have the background to respond. They know that scientists have thoroughly dismantled these arguments, but they don't have a handy way of responding to these attacks. The Counter-Creationism Handbook is a one-stop resource for addressing over 400 of the most prevalent claims made by creationists. Each claim is followed by a succinct and scientifically valid rebuttal, and the book includes print and on-line resources for further reading and information. The Counter-Creationism Handbook: * Covers claims made about the disciplines of philosophy, biology, paleontology, geology, astronomy, physics and mathematics, history, and more. * Addresses the claims of Biblical creationism, intelligent design creationism, and some creationism based on non-Christian religions. * Includes an introduction on how to address creationists in different venues, how to deal with novel claims, and why accurate science is important. * Is organized thematically, with extensive cross-referencing.… (mais)

A good, comprehensive encyclopedia of the evolution-creationism controversy, with entries referenced and cross-referenced by the author's own categories - which he has the decency to explain for us. A valuable reference for any library. ( )

This is a book version of the index of creationist claims on www.talkorigins.org/indexcc .

So you don't really need it.

The claims themselves change very little over the years. Creationists don't do science so they only update their claims much in a blue moon. Claims labelled by them as "new" are usually just old ones re labelled - like irreducible complexity - the new Paley etc.

The science that debunks their claims is being updated constantly and grows more comprehensive with each passing year. So perhaps the web version is your best bet. But if, like me, you like to hold a book in your hands and scribble notes in the margins then why not.

Answers to claims are organised by subject for easy reference and give a response suitable for the layman with references to further reading if you want to delve deeper.

Very well done but only of interest if you find creationists fascinating (like me).

I hope this continues to be true - they day when biology teachers need a copy of this book (I live in the UK) will be a dark one. ( )
