What did you like best about Darwin on Trial? What did you like least?
The book highlights several things in the history of Darwinism and naturalism. Seeing how the politics have developed give a few good insights on the debate.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Darwin on Trial?
I just started studying up on the topic of Evolution and I'm surprised how zealous this particular brand of science is. Reminds me of Newton's third law as evolutionary biologists have become equal and opposite of the creationist movement.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
This is where the audiobook suffers. Since some of the vocabulary is a little more advanced, a casual listener may have to frequently rewind the audio.
Was Darwin on Trial worth the listening time?
I would say that it wasn't. The narration is done with a British accent and at times it is difficult to determine whether something is being quoted. I would read the physical book instead.
Any additional comments?
No doubt this is a controversial topic. I'm new to the debate and already I see anti-creationists and anti-ID making comments on these types of books. You can tell from the rhetoric that they are extremely biased. This is not the only scientific topic that features two sides in a heated debate. Dietary science is in a heated debate between low-fat and low-carb diets. The similarities are difficult to ignore.

This book is excellent!!!.
Phillip Johnson clearly and methodically explores the Evolution controversy and presents the issue in a manner which removes the fog and produces clarity.
The Evolutionary Nazis will hate this book because it clearly and forcefully documents the deception which is being thrust upon our teenagers in the science classroom. Johnson spends time to define what is meant by "Evolution" and explains the difference between Micro evolution, which is observable science, and Darwinian/Macro evolution which is not observable and is believed by faith.
Johnson documents the case that Micro evolution is scientifically supportable but Macro evolution is not.
I thoroughly recommend this book to all who care about the deception being perpetrated onto trusting teens.
This book dovetails well with another Audible.com free book Kansas School Board - Evolutionary Hearings. These hearings contain the testimony of many prominent scientists who dissent from Darwinism and give convincing scientific evidence against Darwinian/Macro evolution.

What made the experience of listening to Darwin on Trial the most enjoyable?
The clear and precise way that the arguments are made, what you would expect from a Lawyer though.
What other book might you compare Darwin on Trial to, and why?
None, it is pretty unique in its premise. Take the arguments to support evolution and 'put them on trial'.
What about Frederick Davidson’s performance did you like?
Yes, very clear and he spoke as though her too were a man of law. Set the scne for the books contents very well.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not really, the whole book seeks to show that whilst the Theory of Evolution is accepted as fact, there is actually very little evidence to support that proposition.
Any additional comments?
Whilst the authour can not be said to be impartial, the case put forward is very clear and precise as one would expect from an authour with a legal background.

This book showcases the fact that darwinian evolution lacks the very component whereby it claims to operate; the addition of new information to the genome. Written by a professor of law with an interest in the debate. A Christian but not a Young Earther. Whilr not an expert in science, is in the fiel of debate and understands the tactics used by those who want to convince others of their position.
