From the Table of Contents of "Science Held Hostage"
Part I: Science as Practiced by Scientists
Part II: Science Held Hostage by Creationism
Part III: Science Held Hostage by Naturalism
Just now, I looked at my bookshelf for the books written by TEs which deal
directly or indirectly with issues raised by evolution. Authors include
Walter Hearn, Charles Hummel, Donald MacKay, Kenneth Miller, John
Polkinghorne, Howard VanTill, Clarence Menninga, Davis Young, George
Interestingly enough, every single book in that collection devotes
paragraphs and chapters to criticizing scientism / evolutionism /
When I think back over the published articles I have read over the past
decade, articles which were written by the TEs who have been regular
contributers to this discussion list, I can say the same thing. To the
best of my memory, every single one of them has written criticizing
scientism / evolutionism / philosophical naturalism.
