Book Review: Darwin's Plantation - Evolution's Racist Roots by Ken Ham and Dr. A. Charles Ware

Rating: 5 Star
Difficulty: Easy to read, understand, and apply
Age recommendation: Teens and Adults
Pages: 196 (including bibliography)

It has always been concerning to me when sitting in church to see how few representatives of other cultures are present, and very upsetting when they are present, yet go unnoticed or are treated as if they are unwelcome. Certainly racism and "racial" segregation has been a big topic in America, as well as the rest of the world, for the last 50 years. Neighborhoods, cities, and even families are often split over the color of one's skin or their physical appearance. While the root of the problem (as well as all others) comes from sin, this issue has its roots in another place as well, Darwinism. In this extremely easy-to-understand and well-written book, Darwin's Plantation, authors and culture/science-experts, Ken Ham and Dr. A. Charles Ware, have co-labored to pull out the weeds of racism by the roots and to plant new seeds of unity and reconciliation among those who have been hurt by segregation and injustice by revealing what the Bible and science truly tell us about physical differences: they are only skin deep! By going over the biblical accounts of Creation, the Fall, the Flood, and the Tower of Babel, the authors dispel the myth of "races," showing that we are all one race and one blood descended from Adam and Eve, and thus, we are all in need of the Salvation offered through the Blood of the Last Adam, Jesus Christ. Along with this is much scientific evidence in genetics and biology that confirms what God has instructed us to do all along, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7) After finished reading this ground-breaking book, you will have a passion for restoring the broken relationships caused by the lie of evolution and racism.

March Foundations Creation Club: Are you a monkey's uncle?

Have you ever wondered what's really behind the theory of evolution?

You are invited to come and get answers to your questions on origins at the March Foundations Creation Club meeting special, "The Five Fundamental Fallacies of Evolution" with teen leader Caleb LePore! For the past two years, Caleb has been giving presentations on the creation/evolution debate at Foundations Creation Club meetings, youth groups, and church groups, which stems from a strong, God-given passion for sharing the truth of the Bible's account of creation in Genesis, especially to other young people. 

One of the biggest objections which people raise to biblical Christianity is the theory of evolution, which seemingly explains away the need for the existence of God... but is it really a scientifically proven fact as public school textbooks and museums claim? In the Five Fundamental Fallacies of Evolution, we will disassemble the theory of evolution piece-by-piece, giving special attention to the true nature of science and why evolution doesn't hold up the scientific test. These Five Fallacies will enable you to stand strong on the Word of God and to see through every example of evolution which can be brought to the table when discussing the issue of origins, including mutations, natural selection, transitional fossils, the big bang, and many others! Caleb will also be sharing his testimony and will conclude with a Q&A session. Here is the information you need to come and be blessed by this message:
