When WorldNetDaily reviews a book, you know it’s about a work of great cultural significance. Thus we proudly bring to your attention Author challenges ‘new atheists’ on man’s origins. It’s about a book titled Cosmos, Creator and Human Destiny (Amazon listing) by Dave Hunt.
There are several men with that name, but this Wikipedia article is about WND’s featured author: Dave Hunt. It says:
Hunt is a strict Biblical Creationist – refutations of evolution are a frequent topic of his radio programs, Search the Scriptures Daily and According to God’s Word. He has stated that “I think that you would have to be, in my opinion, an idiot to think that this universe happened by chance.”
That’s who Hunt is. You already know about WorldNetDaily (WND) — the flamingly creationist, absolutely execrable, moronic, and incurably crazed journalistic organ that believes in and enthusiastically promotes every conspiracy theory that ever existed.
Okay, now we’re ready. Here are some excerpts from WND’s review of Hunt’s book, with bold font added by us. It starts by telling you that Hunt’s book is:
… a robust challenge to the worldviews of Charles Darwin, Richard Dawkins and what Hunt calls “the new atheists.”
Not only that, but:
Always a favorite on the Bible prophecy lecture circuit, Hunt’s nimble mind and discernment about the culture lead him to areas beyond predictive prophecy, such as the debate over origins. Frankly, he has always delivered an intellectual component that is sometimes missing from other conservative commentators, and his gravitas today makes him the ideal candidate to take on the rigid dogma of Darwin, Dawkins and friends.
That got your attention, didn’t it? Hunt — “a favorite on the Bible prophecy lecture circuit” — is taking on Darwin and Dawkins. This is a book you must run out and buy!
Wait! A bulletin just came in. We interrupt this post to inform you that Dave Hunt is featured at the website of none other than Jack Chick, the divinely-inspired artist who brought you Big Daddy? Here, see for yourself what’s posted at Chick’s site: About Dave Hunt.
Okay, sorry about that interruption, but we thought it was important. Now let’s see a few more excerpts from the WND review:
Hunt offers a devastating critique of the breathtaking speculation that the new atheists employ:
[Quoting Hunt:] “What the average person believes to be his or her inner motives, desires or deepest thoughts, says Dawkins and other new atheists, are really the product of evolution turning each person into a puppet of the impersonal forces of natural selection!” Hunt writes. “You think you think, but you really don’t. It’s your selfish genes doing the thinking for you, and you are a meaningless lump of protein molecules.”
Powerful stuff, huh? Let’s see what else WND says:
Chapter 5, “In the Beginning: The Question of Origins,” Hunt really goes after Dawkins & Co., for he virtually demands that they respond to the simple questions: Where did energy come from? Where did life originate?
That is profound! We’ll skip a bit and get to the end, where WND sums it up like this:
Hunt is simply brilliant in this latest book, slicing and dicing through the inane arguments of society’s most feted thinkers. … He has talked with the hopeless, mired in the clay of naturalism, fashioned by Darwin and his contemporaries. Theirs is a philosophy of hopelessness; Hunt offers a counterweight that is so powerfully presented in “Cosmos, Creator and Destiny” that you simply must add it not only to your library, but to your daily conversation.
Well, dear reader, what are you waiting for? Hunt is recommended not only by WND, but also by Jack Chick. Go get his book!
