Thanks to mynym, I have added a new book to my amazon wishlist – The Hidden History of the Human Race (The Condensed Edition of Forbidden Archaeology). At last, perhaps I have found a catalog of fossils that contradict evolution, and how they have been sidelined or supressed by scientists because they don’t match the evolutionary framework.
I have tremendously enjoyed Lubenow’s Bones of Contention: A Creationist Assessment of Human Fossils, a devestating critique of evolutionary views of the fossils. It is a very readable, well-referenced introduction to this idea, but Lubenow focuses on the more well-known fossils (there are evolutionist critiques of his book also). I am therfore rubbing my hands with evil glee with the thought of reading this new book, which may make evolutionary views seem even more out of line with the evidence than they do already.
Interestingly, I think the author is a Hindu – I’ve heard of other religionists besides xians opposing evolution, so it will be interesting to see if this guy has any Hindu interpretations – though one reviewer said that this book doesn’t make any religious claims or stances. Hmmm.
One reviewer said this:
The authors should be congratulated, because they spent eight years producing the only definitive, precise, exhaustive and complete record of pratically all the fossil finds of man, regardless of wheter they fit the established scientific theories or not. … The authors` UNIQUE perspective provides postmodern scholars with an invaluable parallax view of historical scientific praxis, debate, and development.
This volume combines a vast amount of both accepted and controversial evidence from the archeological record with sociological, philosophical, and historical critiques of the scientific method to challenge existing views and expose the suppression of information concerning history and human origins.
