About this book

In this daring work, E.O. Wilson proposes an alliance between science and religion to save Earth's vanishing biodiversity. The Creation is written in the form of a letter to a Southern Baptist Minister with personal anecdotes from Wilson's life.

"Pastor, we need your help. The Creation – living Nature – is in deep trouble. Scientists estimate that if habitat conversion and other destructive human activities continue at their present rates half the species of plants and animals on Earth could be either gone or at least fated for early extinction by the end of the century...The ongoing extinction rate is by the most conservative estimates to be about a hundred times above that prevailing before humans appeared on Earth, and is expected to rise to at least a thousand times greater in the next decades."

Despite the gloom of our times, The Creation offers a ray of hope in the meeting of science and religion.
