Here's an ordered sequence of reading that should help a number of people here (I tried to keep it as short as possible):

 

"Calculus from Graphical, Numerical, and Symbolic Points of View" and "Multivariable Calculus" by Ostebee and Zorn

"Introduction to Analysis" by Arthur Mattuck

"Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems" by Boyce and DiPrima

"Partial Differential Equations" by Lawrence Evans

"Introduction to Smooth Manifolds" by John Lee

"Classical Mechanics" by John Taylor

"Introduction to Electrodynamics" by David Griffiths

"Introduction to Quantum Mechanics" by David Griffiths

"Spacetime Physics" by Taylor and Wheeler

"General Relativity" by Robert Wald

 

Probably some biology books too, but it's not as if I've read them either, so it's not really my place to say.

 

 

edit: maybe throw a "Principles of Physical Cosmology" by Peebles in there too

I would recommend you read "The greatest show on earth", by Richard Dawkins.

 

If the creationists here would read it, you could pretty much close down the forum!

Of course you are incorrect in so many ways. But, since you like court opinions as evidence, here’s one that directly refutes your assertion, and supports mine:

On August 19, 2005 the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that atheism should be treated as a ‘religion.

LOL. Well, if atheism is a religion, who or what do we worship, and what scripures do we have? Where are the rules?

Nature, and naturalistic beginnings/evolution. No God or gods in the picture. Your Idol is nature, and the naturalistic world. Such is easy to see.

Evolution, nature et.al...

The writings of darwin, the Humanist Manifesto, and any other evolutheistic writing that you can latch onto and make statements like "I would recommend you read "The greatest show on earth", by Richard Dawkins. If the creationists here would read it, you could pretty much close down the forum!" And then come back and dogmatically defend the stance. :angry:

Oh come on, Ron. You don't think we actually "worship" those ideas do you?

The way you're dogmatically defending it?... Absolutely! The problem is, you don't realize it.

Too right I don't realise it! Defending what is almost universally regarded as the truth (evolution) does not imply "worship", Ron.

But you do worship it, and you do realize it. It's easy to see also. Besides evolution isn't truth, because if it was, you could show it as plain as day. In each and every post.

 

Such you have failed to do, and so has every other evolutionist.

"Universally regarded as the truth" by it's faithful and zealous (sometimes over zealous... See Richard Dawkins) adherents.

Dunno if this counts as a reading, but it pertains to the argument currently going on, so why not. :)

I would highly recommend "Only a Theory" by Ken Miller. It's one of the best books I've ever read on the topic of origins. It's also short and it's written for the layman.

Hello, All

 

Let me just say first off Praise be to God for leading me to this sight and second of all I had to chuckel when I saw all the books people are listing cause theres only one book people need to be reading to learn everything there is to say about origins and that's the Holy Bible. Period, IMO!

 

Dawkins books might as well say co authored by Satan right on the front cover, LOL. If he was honest thats what he's say but I think we all know better than that.

 

I'm kindly new here and I'll be the first one too admit I don't know much about the socalled science of darwinism and no thats not a typo I will NEVER capitalize his name like I will the creator God with a capitol G! :P if I ever do its by accident!

 

Anyway theres no need to read all those books or even hardly any of them I'd say, cause you already know what there going to say! LOL

Here's an excellent book called After the flood, by Bill Cooper. You can read the whole book for free here in pdf form. Highly recommended.

You also might like Forgotten History of the Western People by Mike Gascoigne. However i have noted with these works that they identify Japheth with Europe, but in my opinion that is wrong. A work that corrects all this is ''In search of...the Origins of Nations'' by C. M White.

Good book. I actually bought this from a missionary while I was in Hong Kong back in 1982.

 

...Unfortunately I lent it to someone and never got it back.
