Science and Earth History

by Arthur N. Strahler
Buffalo, NY: Prometheus Books, 1999. 575 pages.

In his massive Science and Earth History, the distinguished geologist Arthur N. Strahler systematically demolishes not only the geological claims of young-earth creationism but also its claims about cosmology and astronomy, the fossil record, human evolution, and the origin of life, concluding that "the fundamentalist creationist view of the universe, based on the literalist interpretation of the book of Genesis ... constitutes pseudoscience." First published in 1987 and reprinted in 1999 with a new preface.
