About this book

This innovative work explains why almost half of Americans reject biological evolution, and why many have declared war on those who want it taught in schools. While respecting religious culture, the authors explain the motivation for creationists' antievolution beliefs and the bearing creationist culture has on America's students. In addition, the authors show how the most combative creationists operate – impressive war chests, motivation for attacking, emotional connectedness to their attack, religious beliefs, "scientific" objections, on-campus recruitments and debates. They also explain why creationist attacks against evolution are not scientific and what should be done about the whole issue.
