Item Description...
In 1938 the discovery of a large, unusual fish turned the scientific community on end. Dubbed a living fossil, the discovery of a coelacanth in a South African river shocked scientists around the world who thought this type of fish had died out millions of years prior during the process of evolution. Whether a shark, leaf, or crab, living fossils are a challenge for evolutionary theorists, and create a fascinating debate among scholars. Do they indicate a younger earth than thought, placing the millions of years timeline in question? Or do they represent a deep mystery? In Evolution: The Grand Experiment, Vol 2 - Living Fossils delves into these provocative questions and more. The book teaches how science evaluates and classifies the creatures of the world we live in, both past and present. It also unveils the surprises that often force a radical re-evaluation of scientific theory and assumption. The book also includes hundreds of full-color photos.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very interesting  Jul 18, 2009
This is a really good book. It is rather large, but very easy to read, and so interesting. I read it in just one afternoon. I found out a lot of stuff I did not know before. I highly recommend this book for homeschoolers and anyone else interested in the creation/evolution debate.
welcome addition to scientific literature on Darwinian evolution  Jul 17, 2009
I did a review of the first book in this series, Evolution: The Grand Experiment--The Quest for an Answer, which also appeared on several websites. In our homeschool, we used the book for our science last year with both Mark, who graduated in June, and Jeremy, who was in seventh grade. Also, in March of this year, I had the privilege of working with Dr. Werner as one of our speakers at the Greater St. Louis Area Home Educators Expo. He is truly a fascinating man. In Living Fossils, Carl weaves the story of his own personal journey with the results of his research. As a young man, he was raised to believe in the Bible and creation, but in high school began drifting from his religious beliefs, and by 1977 in an accelerated medical college program cast his vote for evolution. However, a year later, a friend challenged him to prove evolution. After hearing from his friend about the many problems with evolutionary theory, he was unnerved and determined to begin a quest to find evidence for and against evolution. For the next eighteen years, he immersed himself in reading and studying the topic of evolution, in the meantime becoming a physician. His plan was based on the prediction that if evolution was not true, then animals and plants would not change significantly over time and therefore one should find fossils of modern animal and plant species in the "older" fossil layers. Finally, in 1997 he and his photographer wife Debbie began visiting museums all over the world and talking to recognized experts in the field of fossils. You would be amazed at what they found. I shall leave you to read (and see) the details in the book, but in short Carl looked for and located in geologic strata which evolutionists consider as coming from the era of dinosaurs fossils of every major category of modern animals (both invertebrates and vertebrates) and plants living today. His conclusion is as follows. "If I ignore the genus and species names and simply compare the fossils found in dinosaur rock layers to modern forms, I see a lack of significant change in all of the major animal phyla and all of the major plant divisions. My findings support the idea that animals and plants have not significantly changed (evolved) over time, but simply some animals and plants have gone extinct, while others have remained relatively unchanged." As with Vol. 1, there is a teacher's manual containing chapter objectives, class discussion questions, and tests for each of the 25 chapters to help in using this book for classroom or homeschooling purposes. This book is certainly a welcomed addition to the growing body of scientific literature which poses questions for Darwinian evolution.
Good stuff...  Jun 4, 2009
An awesome quality book, that I will definitely be using to supplement our homeschool studies next year.
Extraordinary book  May 26, 2009
Like Volume 1, this book's presentation is awesome. The pictures clear, large, and complementing the text exactly. In this book Dr. Werner explains how he came to be involved in evolutionary research and is focusing on his findings in the fossils found around the world. He starts right at the beginning of his journey describing how he started it and how he learned to ask the "right" questions that elicited the most complete answers and of course, those that led him on to further research. He explains how things are named and separated in science. He describes his findings in every branch of fossil research from amphibians to plants. Everything is presented in a very readable and understandable manner with pictures that show exactly what he is talking about. This is a book that would be welcome in a school as a textbook, or in a home as a reference book. Every library should definitely have the series. ~ 5 stars.
A Beautifully Visual Education  May 3, 2009
"Living Fossils" by Dr. Carl Werner is a beautiful book. The written text is minimal, and therefore unintimidating, although it left me wanting more information. The photographs are incredible! Although some of the photos are blurred, which I feel detracted from the otherwise incredible images. It was really amazing to see how many living species of plant and animal almost perfectly resemble fossilized remains, striking a serious blow to the theory of evolution. I was truly amazed at the depth of research and information presented in such a concise, enjoyable and easy to digest and understand format.
