Is there anything you would change about this book?

The class was not what i expected, however, the information was actually better. I enjoyed the philosophical approach even though I was expecting more specific references to literature and authors. I listen again to many of the lectures in the future. My issue with the class: Professor Markos makes evident that he has strong Christian beliefs, that is not a problem. The problem arises in the 21st lecture when he states that evolution and creationism are both myths - neither can be proved. This is an opinion that is stated as a fact. To state that evolution may occur within a species but there is no proof of any general evolution should be followed with a disclaimer that it is his opinion based on his religion. Otherwise, a very informative class.

This is fodder for Mystery Science Theater 3000. Silly, whining female lead character. Flat, mommy's boy male character. The author would do well to occasionally consult a thesaurus for an alternate would for monster.
