"The Science of Evolution and the Myth of Creationism: Knowing What's Real and Why It Matters" offers a clear, lively, and systematic presentation examining the scientific evidence for evolution that is very highly recommended for school and community Science reference collections. Forcefully rejecting creationist objections to evolution and including a critique of so-called 'Intelligent Design', "The Science Of Evolution and the Myth Of Creationism" argues that they are part of a larger social agenda. With discussion that celebrates the fascination to be found in studying the diversity and complexity of life, this examination suggests with some urgency that the science of evolution is crucial to the existence of science itself. Thoroughly 'reader friendly' throughout, "The Science Of Evolution and the Myth Of Creationism" is as informed and informative as it is thoughtful and thought-provoking. Exceptionally well written and featuring a section of full color photography, "The Science of Evolution and the Myth of Creationism" is especially commended to the attention of non-specialist general readers of all ages who are interested in countering Creationism mythologies and defending the scientific approach to the consideration of how life developed on planet earth. Librarians -- it should be noted that "The Science of Evolution and the Myth of Creationism: Knowing What's Real and Why It Matters" is also available in a hardcover edition (9780976023678, $45.00).
