Answers in Genesis is announcing the release of an eye-opening, myth-shattering book, co-edited by its well-known CEO Ken Ham and prolific author Bodie Hodge, entitled Glass House: Shattering the Myth of Evolution.
AiG experts masterfully expose the fallacies and weaknesses that evolutionists don't want you to know and then defend the Genesis creation account. Throughout Glass House, AiG’s team of scholars convincingly reveal, at a layperson level, the flaws in common evolutionary arguments, including
- apes and humans are 98% genetically the same
- dinosaurs evolved into birds
- Neanderthals and Homo erectus are primitive ancestors in our human evolution
- natural selection is a viable mechanism to drive evolution.
This cutting-edge book dismantles evolution argument by argument and is written at a level even a teen can understand. Glass House also shares evolution’s devastating impact on society. “This book fills a vacuum,” declares Ham. “Our AiG scientists have spent decades dissecting evolutionary arguments in books and research papers, and they certainly helped me prepare for my debate with Bill Nye. But we needed a fresh look at the major arguments currently put forward to support molecules-to-man evolution.”
Ham continued: “I especially wanted our team to tackle some of the newest claims made by evolutionists. I’m thrilled with their work in Glass House. The book truly shatters the myth of evolution. The adage, ‘Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones,’ applies to evolutionists. The myth of evolution is a glass house, cracking, and ready to shatter.”
In addition to other scientists and theologians, AiG’s scientist contributors include
- Dr. David Menton (PhD, biology, Brown University)
- Dr. Georgia Purdom (PhD, molecular genetics, The Ohio State University)
- Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson (PhD, biology, Harvard University)
- Dr. Tommy Mitchell (MD, Vanderbilt University)
- Dr. Jennifer Rivera (EdD, forensics, Liberty University)
Many evolutionists work hard to convince young and old that the evolutionary worldview is built on rock-solid foundations—that it’s the foundation for biology, and without it, modern science wouldn’t be possible. Co-editor Hodge points out that in Nye’s debate with Ham, the well-known TV personality “could not, when pressed, cite one example of technology that has been developed that requires belief in evolution. Ultimately, evolution is a religion—an attempt by secularists to explain life and its origin without God.”
Hodge added, “For those who are willing to reconsider their assumptions, it is obvious there are major challenges within evolutionary thought.” He continued, “When you analyze it honestly, you can see right through the facade. Evolution is a model, hypothesis, belief, or a worldview. It is not even a theory, something that can be observed or tested in the present.”
Glass House, published by Master Books, will equip readers to successfully dismantle today’s most popular evolutionary ideas and point people toward the truths of the book of Genesis. A powerful team of credentialed scientists, researchers, and biblical apologists has taken on the pillars of evolutionary belief. The truths they reveal tear down the beliefs of evolution as these scholars use a logical approach to study the evidence.
Celebrating 25 years of outreach this year, AiG is an apologetics (i.e., Bible-defending) ministry based in northern Kentucky, near Cincinnati. The Creation Museum, located west of the Cincinnati Airport, has welcomed over four million visitors since opening in 2007. AiG’s Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind, historically themed attraction with a massive Noah’s Ark as the centerpiece and draws over one million guests a year.
