Denying Evolution aims at taking a fresh look at the evolution–creation
controversy. It presents a truly "balanced" treatment, not
in the sense of treating creationism as a legitimate scientific theory
(it demonstrably is not), but in the sense of dividing the blame for
the controversy equally between creationists and scientists—the
former for subscribing to various forms of anti-intellectualism, the
latter for discounting science education and presenting science as scientism
to the public and the media. The central part of the book focuses on
a series of creationist fallacies (aimed at showing errors of thought,
not at deriding) and of mistakes by scientists and science educators.
The last part of the book discusses long-term solutions to the problem,
from better science teaching at all levels to the necessity of widespread
understanding of how the brain works and why people have difficulties
with critical thinking.
