Comments on "The Greatest Show on Earth"

 

(The Evidence for Evolution)

 

By Richard Dawkins

 

The above book has been commented on by others, in particular, by Jonathan Sarfati

in his book The Greatest Hoax on Earth.  This latter book is described as a response to Dr.

Dawkins book. I have neither the scientific knowledge nor the ability to deal with the subject

as he has done, but there are other aspects which I have in mind to write about. For

convenience I will use Dr. Dawkins chapters as a framework. My Biblical quotations are

taken from the J N Darby translation.
