Hearing Footsteps


Uh, oh.

We're in trouble now:

In her new book -- "The Evolution Conspiracy, Vol. 1: Exposing Life's Inexplicable Origins & The Cult of Darwin" (Slipdown Mountain Publications, 2009) -- Lisa A. Shiel tackles the claims of evolution scientists without promoting either Creationism or Intelligent Design. She exposes the intellectual sleight-of-hand used by evolution supporters and offers a succinct, thoroughly documented, and fully explained explanation readily accessible to non-scientists. Taking a strictly secular approach, she analyzes current evolution theories and asks the difficult questions too many scientists prefer to duck.

Now we have someone who must have the knowledge to knock down our house of cards and we won't be able to dismiss her because she is a creationist.

We'd better check her out:

Lisa A. Shiel researches and writes about everything strange, from Bigfoot and UFOs to alternative history. ... Lisa has a master's degree in library science and was previously the chief investigator for Michigan's chapter of the Mutual UFO Network ... Lisa's other nonfiction books are Backyard Bigfoot: The True Story of Stick Signs, UFOs & the Sasquatch (a finalist in ForeWord Magazine's 2006 Book of the Year Awards) and Strange Michigan.
Ummm ... never mind!
.

Comments:
One of the cover blurbs is from Michael A. Cremo. From Wikipedia:

... also known as Drutakarma dasa, [Cremo] is an American Hindu creationist whose work argues that modern humans have lived on the earth for billions of years.

With an endorsement like that how can it go wrong?
 
Wow! A real expert!
 
Hey! She's a librarian! She's actually seen books!
 
While it's safe to assume you are being sarcastic, I still am not clear on what the following sentence is meant to convey:

"Now we have someone who must have the knowledge to knock down our house of cards and we won't be able to dismiss her because she is a creationist."
 
Yeah, sarcasm it is. Someone who can "expose" scientists, offering a "succinct, thoroughly documented, and fully explained explanation," and "analyzes current evolution theories and asks the difficult questions too many scientists prefer to duck" must be someone who has wide knowledge of the science. Or, as in the case of so many cranks, not.
