About this title

Synopsis:

Charles Darwin described his theory as "a mere rag of any hypotheses with as many flaw[s] & holes as sound parts." "Ride to Glory" exposes flagrant examples of those flaws in a mock trial that rocks the rural campus setting of a fictitious Maryland university.

The question posed to the jury in the stated performance: "Is Evolution a Fact?"

In an intellectual free-for-all, gutsy Ph.D. candidate and star witness, Joshua Chamberlain Ryan, thumbs his nose at Darwinian speculations, incurring the wrath of his major Professor, Karl Striker, devout defender of mega-evolution.

The author/lawyer makes skillful use of precisely endnoted, authentic, academic source materials to make the case.

From the Publisher:

Life had a beginning! Debate rages as to the how and when of the event. All rival explanations for life's origin require faith! The myth of mega-evolution roots its faith in what Darwin himself described as "a mere rag of an hypothesis with as many flaw[s] and holes as sound parts."

In Darwin Retried, Harvard educated Attorney Norman Macbeth referenced Tennessee's 1925 Scopes show trial, noting the "burden of proof" trap set by Clarence Darrow.

"The proponents of a theory, in science or elsewhere, are obligated to support every link in the chain of reasoning, whereas a critic or skeptic may peck at any aspect of the theory, testing it for flaws. The winner in these matters is the skeptic who has no case to prove." Attorney Macbeth suggests that the trauma inflicted on William Jennings Bryan "would have been equally disastrous for Clarence Darrow if he had tried to discharge the burden of proof for the other side."

Ride to Glory uses a make-believe courtroom setting and a lawyer's "chain of reasoning" to unmask evolution's Achilles' heels masquerading as science. To make its case, Ride to Glory cites updated factual data in endnotes blending academic credibility with fictional drama. Evidence is presented to readers, as to a jury, and the "burden of proof" shoe is put on mega-evolution's foot.

Lawyers share the challenge to all scholars: Collect the best evidence; marshal the facts; and seek honest conclusions. The results can be harnessed for presentation in book form by activating the computer's electronic wizardry. Without the input of intelligent design, no computer could create a book, even in 4.55 billion years. Darwin's Origin and Ride to Glory are linked to a common reality: neither book wrote itself.

The DNA code vested in Galapagos finches observed by Darwin carried the inherent information that powered the diversity seen in different-shaped bird beaks. This quite real genetic adaptability cannot be extrapolated to prove make-believe, molecule-to-man traveling mega-evolution's mythical mutation/natural selection route. Finches never parent eagles; fruit fly mutations have yet to produce butterflies!

It strains credulity to recognize the reasoning power of the human brain that concurrently uses that reasoning to concoct its origin to be the result of blind good-luck. Logic encourages faith in the Creative power of an Intelligent Designer, the eternal God of the universe. The alternative: worship at the secular shrine of speculative myth.

Ride to Glory challenges that myth in a premier edition that coincides with the 140th anniversary of the 1859 publication of the initial 1500 volumes of Charles Darwin's Origin of Species.
