This was originally put out as a free download EP by Raven Faith Records and features music by A Martyr's Oath and excerpts from a seminar given by Dr Kent Hovind. It's effectively a lecture on problems with the evolutionary theory (and an interesting sociological viewpoint on the change in American culture since a major educational syllabus change in 1963). Musically it's both solid and interesting. Lyrically it has a few flaws of its own but the philosophical points hold up best, the general thrust being that if we evolved from nothing then questions of the meaning of life are meaningless. I did like the point that both evolution and creation say that matter came from nothing, but one is treated as religious and the other scientific even though they say the same thing. I loved the music, was intrigued by the "vocal" but am not sure I'll go back to it very often.
