The conflict between creationists and evolutionists has raged ever since the publication of »On the Origin of Species» in 1859.

And yet, even as generations of Americans have fought and re-fought the same battles, the contours of the debate have in recent years shifted dramatically.

Tracking the dizzying rhetorical heights and opportunistic political lows of this controversy, Larry Witham travels to America's churches, schools, universities, museums, and government agencies to present creationists and evolutionists in their own unfiltered voices.

We meet leading creationists and proponents of Intelligent Design such as Michael Behe; evolutionists such as Richard Dawkins; and theistic scientists who describe how they reconcile God and Nature.

Today, Biblical literalism is tempered by the Intelligent Design movement, which finds evidence of God's presence in nature's patterns.

The once-dominant »young earth» school has been replaced by a creationism that conscripts the language of science to advance the creationist cause.

Meanwhile, evolutionary scientists hesitate to point out gaps in their theories for fear that such self-scrutiny could serve as fodder for anti-evolution propaganda.

In an age marked both by a rising religious tide and daily scientific breakthroughs, »Where Darwin Meets the Bible» provides the standard account of this lasting conflict. [Språk: Engelska] Häftad
