About this book

Evolution is one of the hotly debated areas in science. On the one hand, there are the scientists with their reliance on hard evidence; on the other, Creationists, with their belief in the literal interpretation of the Bible and a belief in its inerrancy. This book is aimed as a guide to the laymen of the general issues in evolution, but with a particular look at these two schools of thought, and the evidence (or lack of it) for each side. The author concludes that there is no controversy between scientist and creationist, simply one is right, one is wrong!.

Contents

1. What is evolution?; 2. Geologic time and the fossil record; 3. The explanatory power of evolution; 4. The evolution of life and the rise of humans; 5. Science, religion, politics, law, and education; Appendices; Glossary; Further reading; Index.

Media reviews
'Berra's brilliant exposition offers a refreshing, lucid, and insightful view of one of the most important ideas in the history of science. After readingthis superb book, anyone with prior qualms about the scientific validity of evolution should be convinced that evolution is the explanation for the diversity of life on the planet. This is not an anti-religion book, but a very successful attempt to assist us all in understanding the scientific basis for evolution.' Donald C. Johanson, Institute of Human Origins
