History may show that Dawkins has done the church a favour, by waking it out of its complacency on the creation/evolution issue. By focusing the battle right at the foundations, and by putting all the evidence he can muster on display, he has provided a chance for Christians to see via this response that they do not have to keep retreating on this issue, for fear of being seen to contradict ‚Äėthe facts of science'‚Ä¶
The Greatest Hoax on Earth? meets Dawkins' The Greatest Show on Earth head-on. Dr Sarfati firmly and comprehensively answers Dawkins' challenge, chapter after chapter, covering a vast range of disciplines in his trademark crisp, clear style. He convincingly shows, for those with ears to hear, that to believe the Bible's account of Creation/Fall/Redemption straightforwardly not only does not commit intellectual suicide, it is if anything the intellectually superior position.
On the program today, my guest will be Dr. Jonathan Sarfati - a research scientist, speaker and editorial consultant for Creation Magazine and the Journal of Creation. He has authored the book Refuting Evolution (the best selling creation book of all time). He is also a former New Zealand national chess champion (He is well-known at major creation conferences for successfully playing, while blindfolded, up to 12 sighted challengers simultaneously.)
