Money-losing Barnes & Noble and private misshelvers tried hard to keep the Cambrian explosion and other information-rich scenes from the history of life stuck in the awful, disgusting goo of the religion-and-science swamp.
Yet it stayed near the top in paleontology for many months, and has garnered 700 reviews (as of about 12:25 EST). The average rating of 4.5 stars suggests that Darwin trolls are outnumbered by people who want serious answers to serious questions:
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #10,393 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)
- #1 in Books > Science & Math > Evolution > Organic
- #4 in Books > Science & Math > Biological Sciences > Paleontology
- #5 in Books > Christian Books & Bibles > Theology > Creationism
This is another sign of Darwin’s weakening hegemony. People who want serious responses are beginning to insist on them.
Just when all kinds of people who don’t really approach it in a religious way are saying, huh? What?
Look, it had to happen. BioLogos may be best remembered as the crowd who finally decided to actually review the book before dismissing it, as if anyone now cares what the official religion and science crowd now think.
