The Key to Understanding Origins: The Underlying Assumptions
By David Herbert
The issue of origins is one of timeless inquiry-and the importance of understanding the underlying assumptions in unraveling the issue of origins remains the same. Beginning with the religious nature of man, Dr. Herbert shows how a belief in either naturalism or supernaturalism, determines what your position will be. His emphasis on the “faith” nature of each system, is helpful in decoding the quagmire surrounding this issue. So, whether one approaches origins from a creationist or an evolutionist perspective, each will come with some basic tenets. This book examines the assumptions of each view (and their variations) and opens the subject up for investigation and dialogue-with the assumptions clearly before the reader.
