About this book

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 Counter-Creationism Handbook 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.
