It offers a very "balanced" remedy, now not within the experience of treating creationism as a sound medical concept (it demonstrably is not), yet within the experience of dividing the blame for the talk both among creationists and scientists—the former for subscribing to varied varieties of anti-intellectualism, the latter for discounting technological know-how schooling and proposing technological know-how as scientism to the general public and the media. The important a part of the booklet specializes in a chain of creationist fallacies (aimed at displaying blunders of proposal, no longer at deriding) and of blunders by means of scientists and technology educators. The final a part of the booklet discusses long term ideas to the matter, from higher technological know-how instructing in any respect degrees to the need of frequent realizing of the way the mind works and why humans have problems with serious considering.
