Deloria takes on both the evolutionists and religious fundamentalists, giving the reader a critical analysis of flaws of each.

 

In his earlier book, Red Earth, White Lies, Vine Deloria adroitly debunked the “myth of scientific fact.” Here, he takes on both the evolutionists and religious fundamentalists, giving the reader a critical analysis of flaws and anomalies in each side’s arguments. “The views of both are passé,” he says, “and represent only a quarrel within the Western belief system, not an accurate rendering of Earth history.” “When the smoke clears and we mall the proper adjustments in our thinking,” he says, “we will come to understand that quite possibly we are not the first humanoid species to live on this planet; that there is a rough repeating pattern in the Earth’s history in which the planet is transformed and new biospheres come into existence through processes of which we have not yet dreamed.” This traditional tribal worldview, he writes, “may turn out to be our only glimpse of the real planetary past.”
