To naturalist,
Even if what they said about him was true that doesn't mean none of what he says in this book is true. The guy is a highly qualified scientist AND a creationist like many others, it doesn't matter if you are a creationist or evolutionist, you can still be educated in science.

This is an excellent book for those interested in the night sky (like me). I highly recommend it.

(This is an edited part so it was written a little while after the last part) naturalist, ok then you realize he is an intelligent creationist and scientist? And what's this about American loons?

Not in the EPL collection, therefore unable to provide a rating and unable to comment whether the following article about the author is relevant to this book: http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Jason_Lisle
however,
Amazon.ca has the following regarding this book and the author: . . . .
"Dr. Jason Lisle is the Director of Research and a featured speaker and writer for the Institute for Creation Research. He previously served as the Planetarium Director for the Creation Museum in KY. Dr. Lisle has also authored a number of books which include: Taking Back Astronomy, The Ultimate Proof of Creation, Old-Earth Creationism on Trial, and The Stargazer’s Guide to the Night Sky.
Dr. Jason Lisle holds bachelor of science degrees in physics and astronomy from Ohio Wesleyan University, as well as a master’s and PhD in Astro-physics from the University of Colorado in Boulder. As a creation scientist Dr. Lisle effectively communicates a broad range of topics from in-depth presentations of distant starlight, Einstein’s relativity, and problems with the big bang to topics from astronomy and general science to apologetics and dinosaurs."
and,
the author earns #239 in the Encyclopedia of American Loons:
http://americanloons.blogspot.ca/2011/08/239-jason-lisle.html
and,
regarding the starlight problem:
“his explanation for how distant starlight is compatible with a 6 day creation only a few thousand years ago is very, very weak.”

I am an amateur astronomer and I have found Dr. Lisle's book very helpful in studying the night sky.

This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it.
