9780674023390: The Creationists: From Scientific Creationism to Intelligent Design, Expanded Edition

In light of the embattled status of evolutionary theory, particularly as "intelligent design" makes headway against Darwinism in the schools and in the courts, this now classic account of the roots of creationism assumes new relevance. Expanded and updated to account for the appeal of intelligent design and the global spread of creationism, The Creationists offers a thorough, clear, and balanced overview of the arguments and figures at the heart of the debate.

Praised by both creationists and evolutionists for its comprehensiveness, the book meticulously traces the dramatic shift among Christian fundamentalists from acceptance of the earth's antiquity to the insistence of present-day scientific creationists that most fossils date back to Noah's flood and its aftermath. Focusing especially on the rise of this "flood geology," Ronald L. Numbers chronicles the remarkable resurgence of antievolutionism since the 1960s, as well as the creationist movement's tangled religious roots in the theologies of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and Adventists, among others. His book offers valuable insight into the origins of various "creation science" think tanks and the people behind them. It also goes a long way toward explaining how creationism, until recently viewed as a "peculiarly American" phenomenon, has quietly but dynamically spread internationally--and found its expression outside Christianity in Judaism and Islam.

Descripción Harvard University Press November 2006, 2006. Paper Back. Estado de conservación: New. Probably the best historical study of the dramatic rise of creation science this century, and its roots in late nineteenth-century Protestant theology. Numbers has supplemented his original 1992 publication with two new chapters on the rise of the Intelligent Design movement and the global spread of creation science. Sometimes a book's commendations are important to pass along, and this is one such case. From George Marsden, the dean of historians of Fundamentalism in this country: 'In this monumental history of the young-Earth movement, there is no bitterness or cynicism. Rather, Numbers tells the story with remarkable even-handedness.This marvelously detailed, engagingly told and sometimes astonishing history has the intrigue of a Chaim Potok novel.' And from the influential Henry Morris, founder of the Institute for Creation Science: 'For those interested in the background of the modern revival of creationism, whether evolutionists or creationists, this book is a rich mine of information and historical insights.' Numbers is Professor of the History of Science and Medicine at the University of Wisconsin. Nº de ref. de la librería 20101020180088
