EVOLUTION AS HISTORICAL FICTION?

Here’s a good one.  Amazon just categorized Long Live Earth as historical fiction:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank:  #54 in Books > Children’s Books > Literature & Fiction > Historical Fiction > Prehistory

I guess it was presumptuous of me but I assumed that an evolution theme would be lumped in somewhere (anywhere) amongst the non-fiction.  Read the first first few pages of Long Live Earth below…  pretty straightforward stuff.

Who is pulling those levers over there anyway?  Is the Great Oz of Amazon a Creationist?  Or is just his algorithm a Creationist?

LONG LIVE EARTH p.1

LONG LIVE EARTH p.2

LONG LIVE EARTH p.3

LONG LIVE EARTH p. 4

 

Oh well. If Long Live Earth (and evolution) have to be categorized as prehistorical fiction I should at least be grateful that it has made the top 100 in that list.  I think.  :-/
