This is a thorough study of the current evidence both for and against the theory of evolution. As one of the most controversial topics of our day, it is appropriate for learning institutions and home educators to address this issue; it is vital that students be given the opportunity to see both sides of the evidence.
The material presented in this book comes from interviews with over 60 expert scientists from some of the most highly acclaimed scientific institutions, universities, and museums of the world. Yet it has been written in laymen’s terms so that it can be used in an educational setting. The parent/teacher does not have to be familiar with the theory of evolution to use this material.
Included in the topics under review are: two opposing views of the origin of life, spontaneous generation, mechanisms for evolution, acquired characteristics, natural selection, chance mutations, what evidence exists for evolution, the fossil record, formation of DNA, and formation of proteins and amino acids.
