Evolution vs. Creationism

While writing his landmark book on the theory of biological evolution, On the Origin of Species, Charles Robert Darwin knew he would face religious opposition to a theory of creation that differed from the story in Genesis, but he probably didn’t imagine that the opposition would last more than 150 years after its publication. Creationists, or those who hold the belief that the universe and all life was made by divine creator, have tried to use a myriad of tactics either to ban the teaching of evolution entirely or to have creationism and/or intelligent design taught alongside it in public schools. In this eBook, Evolution vs. Creationism, we take a close look at the rise of Darwinism, the arguments and opposition by the creationist movement, whether faith and science can coexist and what could happen if the U.S. continues on an anti-science trajectory.
