While evolutionists point to every new discovery of humanlike fossils as further evidence to support the theory that people evolved from apelike creatures, Marvin L. Lubenow contends that the fossils do more to disprove evolutionary theory than otherwise. In "Bones of Contention, " Lubenow offers readers of all backgrounds a readable argument for the creationist view of the origins of humankind that addresses all angles of the issue. In this new edition, Lubenow has thoroughly updated and revised his original material to reflect a dozen years of evolutionist theory and modern paleoanthropology. Scholars and laypeople alike will find solid answers, grounded in research, to all of their tough questions.
