Description
Despite the vocal controversy in American media, in which tradition often seems more significant than fact, evolution remains a cornerstone of science. Here evolutionary biologist Francisco Ayala—winner of the National Medal of Science and the 2010 Templeton Prize—cuts through the hype to provide definitive answers to six perennial questions about evolution: Am I a monkey? Why is evolution a "theory"? What is DNA? Do all scientists accept evolution? How did life begin? And, can one believe in evolution and God? In clear, concise terms Ayala explains the basic science that underlies evolutionary theory and how the process works, and also makes a sound case for why evolution is not a threat to religion.

"An important book—a lucid account of evolutionary theory and related topics, which reviews the overwhelming evidence that establishes evolution as an incontrovertible fact, and which then goes on to offer some convincing reasons why people of faith need not regard the theory of evolution as an enemy or an obstacle to their religious beliefs."—Harry Frankfurt
