"This is not business as usual with evolution versus creation" says Mr. O'Keefe about Gaining the High Ground over Evolutionism. "Scientific evidence must be considered but scientific reasoning and knowledge themselves cannot be left unaccounted for. Evolutionary science assumes the validity of reasoning and knowledge but assuming is not explaining."

"I am neither a scientist nor a philosopher" says Mr. O'Keefe, "but an academic outsider with perhaps enough remoteness in perspective to recognize the duplicity of evolutionary science. A stipulation of scientific inquiry cannot be set forth as its conclusion."

  • The question about where one comes from (origin) would seem to be relevant to many others that affect society, the world, and life in general.

 

  • The attempt to explain all that exists (the universe, earth, living things, and human beings in particular) in natural cause and effect terms is incapable of answering why they exist, and how they exist is generally beyond any means of empirical verification.

 

  • Positive evidence of the supernatural is found in aspects of day-to-day living such as rationality, truth, justice, meaning and purpose, freedom and goodness, value, love, hope, and trust. Attributing any of these to biological causes nullifies their significance.

The historical stipulation that limited scientific inquiry to natural causes eventually became a conclusion of scientific inquiry under evolutionary science—the conclusion that natural causes are the only causes that exist. The inquiring mind was thereby implicitly attributed to natural causes. But the truth that scientists know is not a product of the causes science considers.


The origin topic has serious philosophical and ideological undertones. It demands to be handled as much or more as a philosophical problem with an intriguing history as a matter of scientific evidence.

Gaining the High Ground over Evolutionism recognizes the ideological nature of the topic of origins. With the accompanying workbook, it is the educational resource that will help teachers and students put today's naturalistic, anti-creation bias in its place.

 

  • Draws from the history of the scientific revolution as well as relevant aspects of the histories of geology, biology, and physics

  • Discusses the scientific method as it is applied to natural history

  • Reviews and assesses the interpretations of Genesis 1

  • Reviews and assesses the history of court proceedings dealing with evolution versus creation in science education

  • Clarifies how scientific reasoning cannot be a natural process and how scientific knowledge cannot be a product of natural causes

  • Investigates the proper relation between reason and faith in contrast to the popular view

  • Summons back the case for why the Bible is the word of God
