Dr. Nirushan Sivanesan’s compelling work, Objections to Evolution, makes a case against the theory of evolution by evaluating it against scientific guidelines. Unlike many books on the topic, the work examines the theory as a stand-alone concept that should be convincing in itself and not defended as an alternative to creationism. In the first chapter, Dr. Sivanesan notes that evolution, which is a presumption, is not based on observation nor can testable scientific principles be applied to it. Other chapters examine the evidence put forward in support of evolution and its reliability. In another section, questions that still remain unanswered are explored. The rationality behind the belief in both creationism and evolution is also questioned. The work concludes by exploring the factors that have led to the success of the theory of evolution.

The work uses analogies to explain the discussions in it, which makes it easy to understand in a work that could appear too technical for someone without a background in science. Chapters are effectively divided into sub-sections which break down the content into comprehensible parts. Diagrams are also included for further clarity. The work stands out because it evaluates the theory against scientific guidelines and refrains from examining it against creationism, which cannot be scientifically proven. In the end, Objections to Evolution by Dr. Nirushan Sivanesan raises thought-provoking questions that make any reader, especially a believer in the theory of evolution, take a step back and examine the theory with a fresh pair of eyes. The discussions are intelligent and accessible and the work overall is powerful.
