This web-site records evidence from peer-reviewed scientific work which questions many aspects of our traditional understanding of the world around us and particularly a Darwinian view of it. As such it provides an excellent opportunity to review differing interpretations of the evidence, encourage objective debate about them and also provide educational opportunities to find explanations.
Because this paradigm crisis is emerging currently in mainstream science, literature providing an overview is largely recent. A body of literature is also accumulating from scientists who approach the issue from a biblical rather than a materialistic or Darwinian world-view. The following select list of books is therefore divided broadly into these two categories.

We acknowledge with gratitude two anonymous benefactions which have made possible the professional design of this website.
A graphics-rich virtual museum site is heavily dependent on illustrations and we are grateful to many people, who are named in the text, for the availability of copyright-free photographs. We have also used a number of illustrations from United States government agencies which, operating in the public domain, waive copyright. These include the National Parks Service (NPS), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the U S Geological Survey (USGS); we have named their photographers where known.
In certain cases we requested the use of copyright photographs for which permission was readily given from Mark Erickson, Don Geyer (www.mountainscenes.com), Geoff Lewis, James Lewis, Erling Ólafsson, Jennifer Roberts, Andrew Snelling and David Tyler.
Other photographs are published under the Creative Commons attribution and share alike licensing arrangements, mainly as recorded in version 3.0 of the licence (see http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0). This applies to photographs by Madeleine Price Ball, Anne Burgess, Chosovi, C M Denniss, Alberto Fernandez, Isaac Gary, Haplochromis, Kipala, Olaf Leillinger, Michael Maggs, Mila, Michael Ströck, Quadell, Keith Schengili-Roberts, Noodle Snack and SNP.
We have endeavoured to attribute all illustrations where they are in copyright and would be glad to know of any errors so that these can be corrected. Use of an illustration does not in any way suggest that the photographer or artist endorses this site or the context in which their work is used.
