Reindeer Don’t Fly
Reindeer Don’t Fly: Exploring the Evidence-Lacking Realm of Evolutionary Philosophy
What will the reader learn from the thought-provoking, comprehensive, and compelling new book Reindeer Don’t Fly by Michael Earl Riemer? They will uncover the numerous shortcomings and misconceptions of evolutionary doctrine. But most importantly, for those who are pastors, preachers, parents, high school and college students, and all others who need answers to the excess of false evolutionary dogma paraded before them (“science falsely so called” I Tim. 6:20), the reader will learn the answer to questions such as:
· Scripture records that there was a world-wide flood, so where did the water come from?
· Where did the water go after the flood?
· Is there enough water to cover Mt. Everest?
· Is there a reliable method scientists can use to date the age of the earth?
· Is there life in outer space?
· Did people really co-exist with dinosaurs?
· What was the pre-Flood world really like?
· Can animals evolve; change from one kind of creature into another species?
· If the theory of evolution is invalid and worthless, why do so many scientists and others promote this teaching?

“…having read books similar in topic as yours and comparing them, I found Reindeer Don’t Fly involving the reader while some of the others were very hard to read. You make the book personal with stories and experiences you had. The stories allowed the reading to not become cumbersome.” – Director of Headwaters Christian Youth, Mike Prom
“I read the first 60 pages and then scanned through the rest of it. Looks really good…You dealt with the fundamental impotency of evolutionism—its inability to explain the origin of organic life… Well-documented and convincingly argued…I am definitely interested in carrying this book as one of our titles in our website bookstore.” – Edward E. Stevens, International Preterist Association
…Riemer’s book is non-technical and delivered in a discussion-based format. In addition, it has a lot of reference materials from all sides of the divide, hence, readers will be well equipped to decide for themselves as to their standpoint. Furthermore, to those readers who choose creationism, they will learn to appreciate more the wonders of creation and learn how best to employ the resources designed by God: as an example, I was especially intrigued by the “back to Eden method of organic gardening” practiced by one Paul Gautschi. Based on his method, it doesn’t matter what kind of soil (sandy, rocky, clay, etc.) someone starts with, “within a few years one would be harvesting nutritious produce from those very spots without removing any small rocks or digging the ground first!”… – by Wyland
It Was at Hand
In this provocative new book, Michael Riemer uncovers the contradictions of dispensational “end times” theology. Riemer argues that the false emphases that Dispensationalists have placed on the “imminent second coming” and the “Rapture” have led many Christians to a life of unfruitful speculation, rather than service and love. Instead of finding new ways to spread the Gospel and to bring a blessing to the world, Dispensationalists have inclined Christians toward a bunker mentality-live separate and wait to be spirited away.
In plain and engaging language Riemer traces many of the excesses of the Dispensationalists, including their wildly contradictory dating of the end of the world and their wrenching of the context of many prophecies of Scripture. He gaves a clear exposition of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks. He also provides an insightful discussion of Jesus’ Olivet Discourse, in which he arugues convincingly that the original listeners and the first-century church would have understood Jesus’ words of warning in the context of the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 AD, not some Tribulation to occur two thousand years later.
All in all, Riemer chastens many modern American Christians for the arrogance that has led to the notion that we are the special ones, the ones privy to the secret knowledge of the latter dispensation. He calls for humility and a return to the great theological traditions of the Church that have been passed down through the centuries.

What others are saying:
Science Clashing with Belief! The author brings belief as a powerful statement in this book. We're dealing with science clashing with belief. Or, science clashing with religious history. It's pretty hard to argue against the Bible if you're a Christian. Is science right or is science wrong. Is belief right or is belief wrong? The author brings compelling energy to his thesis. If you're a Godfelt believer in the Bible and its version of creation, you may enjoy this literary journey. It fits your belief system. If you're a scientific veteran, you might wring your hands in despair. It's an outstanding literary ride for a person who accepts Scripture as fact. What I liked the most: it gives you more to think about, more to ponder and more to contemplate as to your own understanding of how humans arrived and where they are going.
I enjoyed the book very much. It is short, so don't expect any heavy, in-depth refutations of popular misconceptions. But it does a good job of bringing up hard questions that believers in materialism and evolution must answer.
Wise and Funny! If you're searching for a genuinely entertaining read, this book fits the bill. "The Path Life Takes" is a marvelous collection of autobiographical sketches tracing the life of a very singular man. Combining poetry and prose with wisdom, insight, and rollicking humor, an affecting story emerges where light replaces darkness, triumph overcomes personal loss, and faith becomes a key component that changes all.
Actually reading the book is what gives you the right to critique it. Puetz's "just looking at the sample book" is disingenuous and lacks integrity. Actually read the book if you're going to review it. Ugh. I, in fact, did read the book. The extensive bibliography alone is enough to indicate the amount of research put into this writing. The brilliance of this book is it exposes the actual LACK of science in evolution. From page 53, "Macroevolution is the transformation of one kind of living creature over a long period of time into a different organism, with different features, such as lungs, eyes, wings, or scales, not possessed by its parentage or extraction. This has never been observed and as will be demonstrated in this book, cannot happen." It's unfortunate the number of people who want us to check our brains at the feet of "scientists" and just trust everything they say. For those who aren't inclined to do so, this book is informative, enlightening, refreshing and educational.
References! Lots of references viewed on a faith-based theory.

A very well thought out approach to eschatology and I recommend it as it is Biblical based and not a lot of radical assumptions like some eschatological books.
America’s Overpopulation Predicament: Blindsiding Future Generations
This book will rock you because you can’t ‘unread’ it once you’ve digested the facts. Everything is supported by verifiable sources. This book documents that the human race is in deep trouble in the 21st century. At the same time, I offer solutions…somewhat harsh, yet realistic in the last three chapters!

America’s 200-Year War with Terror: The Strange Case of the Treaty of Tripoli
For years secularists have tried to use the 1797 Treaty with Tripoli as evidence that the founding of America had nothing to do with the Christian religion. A more thorough study of the Treaty and the history behind it tells a different story. One big lesson of that history is that the United States government hasn’t learned much since 1797 in dealing with radical Islam. Destroying “the sword of the spirit” (Eph. 6:17) which is able to pierce “as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Heb. 4:12) will only lead to ongoing wars with bullets, missiles, tanks, and worse. To learn the true story behind this controversial subject, download a free copy of my book America’s 200-Year War with Terror: The Strange Case of the Treaty of Tripoli.
Identifying the REAL Last Day Scoffers
What were the scoffers in Peter’s day scoffing at when they asked, “Where is the promise of His coming?” (2 Peter 3:3) Modern-day prophecy writers argue that anyone who questions that the return of Jesus is near based on Israel becoming a nation again and certain end-time signs is an end-time scoffer, and Peter had them in mind when he wrote his second letter. The simple fact is, the New Testament writers, including Peter (1 Peter 4:7; cf. Heb. 9:26), taught that Jesus would return “shortly” (Rev. 1:1, 3; 22:10), before the last apostle died (John 21:18–24; Matt.16:27–28), within a generation (Matt. 24:34), because the time was “near” for them (James 5:7–9; Rev. 1:3) that the old covenant was in the process of passing away. The “coming” mentioned by a number of New Testament writers was a “coming” in judgment, not a physical coming like Jesus’ incarnation, but similar to the predicted comings that resulted in judgments by God as described by Old Testament prophets (e.g., Isa. 19:1; Micah 1:2–4; Zeph. 1).

Is Jesus Coming Soon?
Wars and rumors of wars, famines, plagues, and earthquakes. These are the biblical signs. All of them are realities of planet earth in our day. Is Jesus coming back soon? Did Jesus provide an exact, predictable scenario as so many modern prophecy writers advocate? The answer to these questions will shock the majority and ambush the sentries of the end-times quo. The question on the minds of believers has always been: Is Jesus coming soon? A Great little book to put in the hands of someone who is beginning to study biblical prophecy. Possibly, you would be that person.
