There are flaws that need to be mentioned here. Let’s mention them and get them out of the way because the rest of this book, the vast majority of it, is fantastic.
The flaws:
1) The author spends a few pages recounting a glorious biographical history of the scientific exploits of 19th-century Frenchman Louis Pasteur that is probably false. Read the book THE DREAM AND THE LIE OF LOUIS PASTEUR by R.B. Pearson for the real deal on that. Additionally, a photograph of Pasteur standing alongside his daughter is provided, and the author even praises the photo itself, declaring how it shows what a great family man Pasteur was. Trouble is, Pasteur is evincing an obvious freemasonic pose in the photo, and the author fails to note this. The author claims Christ as his Saviour; freemasonry is luciferian.
2) Two of the many other photographs of noteworthy 19th-century intellectuals reveal the subject of the photo evincing a freemasonic pose. Given that the author culminates his message by connecting the philosophical dots between Darwinism and the New World Order, passing acknowledgement of the part that high-degree freemasonry plays in the NWO should have been made, but it was not.
3) The author writes for a couple pages about the Apollo Moon “Landings.” Yeah, right.
4) Roman Catholicism and Protestantism are not differentiated from the true Christianity of the Scriptures.

Now the good stuff, and it really is excellent:
This is not the typical Creationist book; it is more interesting than most. Ian Taylor is truly insightful in making the big-picture connection between the Darwinian philosophy and the secular-humanism of the past and present architects of the New World Order.
Taylor focuses unwaveringly on PEOPLE: Historical luminaries, philosophers, inventors, theologians, scientists, etc., beginning with Plato and finishing up with Julian Huxley. In between, he documents noteworthy thinkers who had anything to do with or against the development of the Darwinian worldview. Many photographs of the personages are provided.
Taylor does a brilliant and thorough job (over 400 pages) of explaining, step by step, from very early on in history, what we now call “evolution” had always been percolating in unregenerate minds, and how, as the 19th century brought about Darwin and his racist, rebellious work, there really was, and had been for some time, a very real conspiracy of wealthy, antichrist intellectuals who helped promote, propagandize, and browbeat people with the new Darwinian dogma.
And Taylor adroitly documents how extraordinarily zealous were the historical apostles of Darwinism: Time and again, men like Haeckel and de Chardin and other Darwinian stalwarts bore false witness, cherry-picked their facts, engaged in unbridled, self-delusional bias, perpetrated hoaxes, conspired together in secret, resorted to intrigue—you know, all those hallmarks of modern, respectable scientific pursuit.
A brilliant book, very interesting to read. Taylor also finds the time and space to show, with a modicum of surprisingly detailed scientific rigor, why all the methods that Darwinists use to make their claim that the Earth is billions of years old are very, very suspect indeed.
Mostly, however, Taylor focuses on the history and the people involved. He also makes a quite compelling argument that the errant conjectures of Charles Lyell are of much more historical significance than the errant conjectures of Charles Darwin.
Also highlighted (lowlighted?) are the historical hireling shepherds who compromised with the Darwinian philistines or sold out the Bible entirely, and did so on the basis of a given set of “discovered facts” about “evolution” which nowadays, embarrassingly, even modern neo-Darwinists have acknowledged to be erroneous. Doh!!

First published in the early 1980s. Despite the flaws I give it my highest grade.
