Creationism and Its Critics in Antiquity

i-3bb1f5ae0b48d07e46b96b2e324776ed-creationism.jpgI stumbled upon Creationism and Its Critics in Antiquity at the bookstore. I don’t have time to read it right now, but I thought I’d point to it since I’m sure some readers would be interested. Accuse me of being excessively Whiggish if you must, but it just reiterates that Creationism doesn’t belong in a science class; the basic disputes are a rehash of philosophical & religious clashes which are timeless, or at least date from the rise of philosophy in the ancient world. Creationism is ahistorical; I believe it is rooted in psychological intuitions about ontology which rebel against systematic critiques which undermines naive perceptions of How the World Works.
