The new book from Paul Taylor

A BBC documentary series showed a giant, extinct, supposedly carnivorous bird catching and eating a tiny alleged ancestor of the horse. “This is a world where birds eat horses”, intoned the Oscar-nominated actor, voicing the narration. The evidence for this? One fossil gastornis (a giant bird), six fossil propalaeotheria (supposed horse ancestors) and one fossil bunch of grapes (that caused the “horses” to get tipsy, and lose concentration) all found together in one place. From this find was woven a fascinating story, which was then presented, as if it were a wildlife documentary. Where Birds Eat Horses: The Language of Evolution shows that evidence for evolution does not reside in observational science, but in the clever use of language. The book assists the reader in spotting such unscientific or pseudo-scientific language in textbooks, popular science articles, and documentary films. Without needing a degree in science, the actual science in such media can still easily be filtered from the use of fuzzy words, magic words and false presuppositions. It is shown that the acceptance of the truth of Genesis is a much better foundation for science than the mythologies of evolution.

The book is available for pre-order from the Mount St Helens Creation Center.

    Fascinating title and premise, Bro. Taylor. What age level are you targeting? This could be an eye opener for young people if they come across these concepts.
    The only thing I've noticed since receiving your training on spotting fuzzy words is how few there are in kids' books. They never say, “we think this fits what we know better than anything else” or anything honest like that, but rather, “these animals did this, ate that, lived then” just as if they were eye witnesses and these are incontrovertible facts.

      It's aimed at both adults and teens. The reading age is 12. i think anyone 12 and above would benefit.

      am going to produce a workbook to go with the main book. I have also
      put together, for sale in our store at the Center, a highlighting kit,
      containing the materials necessary – though you can obviously get them
      for yourself in any big store.
