The Case against Darwin is James Perloff’s second title on the creation-evolution debate. Written from a creationist perspective, this 83-page book is a primer for those unfamiliar with the subject, and too busy for a full-length book such as the author’s earlier Tornado in a Junkyard. Perloff first explores the social impact of Darwinism to establish the relevance of the topic. Then, in layman’s language, he discusses the growing body of evidence that is invalidating Darwin’s theory of evolution: evidence from genetics, origins science, biochemistry, paleontology, taxonomy and molecular biology. Finally, he examines fallacies of certain evidences commonly said to support Darwin’s theory: Ernst Haeckel’s embryo drawings, vestigial organs, salt percentages in blood and seawater, babies born with “monkey tails,” peppered moths, microevolution, and similarity as a proof of common descent. Despite the scientific nature of the material, Perloff keeps it light and short, and most readers should find The Case against Darwin an easy read.
