I have more thoroughly skimmed G.M. Grena’s “Evolution Science”. Overall, my first impression of the book has not changed; I have found it to be utterly insipid, largely witless, and horrendously shallow. It is filled with real questions posing as rhetorical questions, demonstrating a horrific lack of intellectual curiosity, painfully demonstrates the author’s lack of credentials (which shouldn’t be a barrier to the author writing something worthwhile, as demonstrated by the existence of the very important LMLK research website, created by the author, who is, like me, no archaeologist). It reads not even as well as a typical G.M. Grena blogpost, does not read anything like a good book, and has the same writing style as a rant such as the one found on the Time Cube website. I have finally found the origin of the snake logo on the back cover. The candle on the back cover is to point out that the viewer of the photograph of the candle cannot know when the candle was lit.
Needless to say, hilarities are promised here, and they shall be presented:
The Great Pyramid of Giza is probably the only manmade structure that survived the Flood; however, a detailed discussion is beyond the scope of this book (cf. Isaiah 19:19-20 & Josephus in “Antiquities of the Jews” book 1, chap. 2, par. 3). Suffice it to say it was obviously not built by the same people for the same reason as all the other Egyptian pyramids.
–Evolution Science, p. 265
-I don’t see why G.M. Grena thinks this is the case. There is no evidence the Great Pyramid was ever covered with seawater. The Great Pyramid is a clear descendent of Sneferu’s smooth-pyramid building attempts at Dahshur. Yahweh is not mentioned inside the Great Pyramid relieving chambers; Khufu and Khnum are. See also this post by Irna, French-speaking foe of pyramidiocy everywhere. G.M. Grena’s other comment on the Great Pyramid is here. Apparently, Grena rejects Khufu’s association with it [quadruple facepalm] and believes it to be the stone pillar mentioned as being seen in Josephus’s time in the land of Egypt (i.e., the Siriad) which Josephus considered to have been made by astronomers/astrologers before the flood.
Perhaps the most ridiculous two contiguous blocks of text from the book are these:
Also notice the following:
1) Bones decay to dust in a few centuries in very dry regions & in a few years in damp regions (Indonesia, China, & England). How could any of them last for hundreds of thousands, or millions, or tens of millions of years?
2) When an “evolutionary descendant” is found, it’s usually a single group of bones in a limited locale (like es-Skhul in the previous chapter). They sure must’ve been lonely! Where are the billions of transitional bones expected over millions of years spanning a wide region?

[Triple facepalm]. Doesn’t “1)” fully explain “2)”?*
I have, while typing this post, discovered one important disadvantage of the paperback: it seems impossible to keep a thick one open without the use of a hand, thus preventing easy typing while having the book open. I also note plenty of the links on the “Evolution Science” webpage are broken.
*Yes, kids, it does.
