Am I a Monkey?: Six Big Questions about Evolution

Am I a Monkey?: Six Big Questions about Evolution


Despite the continuing cultural controversy in the USA, evolution is still a cornerstone of technological know-how. during this e-book, Francisco J. Ayala―an evolutionary biologist, member of the nationwide Academy of Sciences, and winner of the nationwide Medal of technological know-how and the Templeton Prize―cuts to the chase in a bold try to deal with, in nontechnical language, six perennial questions about evolution:

• Am I a Monkey?• Why Is Evolution a Theory?• what's DNA?• Do All Scientists settle for Evolution?• How Did lifestyles Begin?• Can One think in Evolution and God?

This to-the-point e-book solutions each one of those questions with strength. Ayala's sometimes biting essays refuse to lend credence to disingenuous principles and arguments. He lays out the fundamental technology that underlies evolutionary conception, explains how the method works, and soundly makes the case for why evolution isn't a possibility to religion.

Brief, incisive, topical, authoritative, Am I a Monkey? will take you an afternoon to learn and an entire life to ponder.
