I’ve decided to undertake some book reviews. My plan is evaluate the argumentation in the books. This means that I’ll largely be just taking their factual claims as a given (regardless of who ridiculous they are), to see if the conclusion of the book follows from the chapters that came before.
In other words, I’ll be testing the books for logical validity. I have a couple of books in mind to start with (see below).
I’ll be starting with Darwin’s Doubt, by Stephen C. Meyer. Meyer is, according to the cover, going to use the apparent inability of Evolutionary Biology to explain the Cambrian Explosion to make a case for
Creationism Intelligent Design.
While the first two books are religious in nature, I don’t plan to stick to religious books (nor to books that, let’s face it, I’m set against from the outset). If anyone out there would like to suggest a book for which this kind of review could be interesting, please suggest it, and I’ll see what I can do about getting a copy.
