It may be partially my own fault that I was expecting something different when i purchased this audio series. I was looking for an intellectually stimulating discussion (/hearing) on evolution.
Personally, I grew up in the UK in a time where science and the scientific method is considered of utmost importance. In my primary school we were introduced to creationism and educated on a large number of popular religious around the world. From primary up until university level education we were taught about the most recent and relevant advances in science. They were taught as 2 separate subjects. Neither posing an implication upon the other. Whilst it was an interesting listen, I found myself at times almost aggravated at the idea that a hearing such as this should occur. This audio series is a testimony to the ever growing censorship of education by an overbearing parent population. Hearing the entire field of "science" questioned (moreover misunderstood), and the argument for creation being worthy of replacing scientific alternatives left me dumbfounded and content to have being educated in the system I was.
Interesting non the less
