For those that have read it, feel free to comment.
I wish not give this monstrosity any more publicity than it deserves, but seeing as how mvc has a popular of 15 it shouldn’t be a problem.

I have never in my life seen so much subtle bias in any piece of work than in this book.

Disclaimer: I’m barely starting to read it.

So far the author of the book has establish that she doesn’t think evolution is real.
But the most breathtaking part is her reasoning, truly a conundrum of a work.
Her subtle key words that try to question scientific theories are best described as low blows. She constantly inserts words like “somehow” and “magic/magical” when describing scientific theories as if they had no bases.

She thinks evolution is false because she claims that no one can explain the word... evolution. She proceeds to define the scientific version of evolution: modification with decent.
At this point I’m really waiting for a strong argument from her part that will prove her point- but to my dismay, she tells the reader the original meaning of evolution.
Which is linear progress and then goes on to say that Darwin didn’t use evolution for that reason.

So in her mind evolution is false because the word had a different meaning in the past- she tries to pass this off as scientific incompetence.

And that’s just the beginning, lol.

It’s clear that she feels insecure because she can’t understand the scientific language that scientists. She constantly says scientists have hidden agendas and that they use biology jargon to do so, thus reminding unchallenged.


If anyone else has read this book, give your opinion.

PS I didn’t know whether to place this here or in science, so move it if you like.

That’s just about as bad as people who don’t believe in global warming because climatologists are paid to do their job.

Global warming isn’t actually a thing.

Evolution evolved from itself.

Obviously.

She also makes a similar argument that’s basically modeled by her evolution argument, when talking about species: " scientist have stumbled over more obstacles in defining a species than in defining evolution itself”


And then she quotes Charles Darwin when he said species was an arbitrary word and she then goes on to say scientists since then have made up more explanation and definitions for that word- as if that was a good argument.
The funny thing is though that she defines species by the regularly used definition:
A population that can or potential can interbreed.


And a few pages before that she also puts up for question or rather argument that the definition for life could also apply to machines in the future.
Basically, she thinks humans are special and evolution makes them no better than animals.

I’m going to go continue reading it, maybe I’ll have more wonderful arguments to share later on.

PS I don’t know if I can make highlights since I have work and other things to take care of.
I’ll try though and hopefully I can 're write the comments I made earlier into a neater form.
