Answer #2: Evolution made us.Which is it? What is the true answer to the age-old question of where we came from? Is it even possible to know for sure? In "Finding Darwin's God, " Kenneth R. Miller offers a surprising resolution to the evolutionism vs. creationism debate.A distinguished professor of biology at Brown University, Miller argues that the genuine world of science is far more interesting than either the scientific mainstream or its creationist critics have assumed. He begins by systematically demolishing the claims of evolution's most vocal critics, showing that Darwin's great insights continue to be valid, even in the rarefied worlds of biochemistry and molecular biology. As he puts it, evolution "is the real thing, and so are we." Does this mean that evolution invalidates all worldviews that depend upon the spiritual? Does it demand logical agnosticism as the price of scientific consistency? And does it rigorously exclude belief in God? His answer, in each and every case, is a resounding No. Not, as he argues, because evolution is "wrong." Far from it. The reason, as Miller shows, is that evolution is "right." In this lively, fast-paced book, Miller offers a thoughtful, cutting-edge analysis of the key issues that seem to divide science and religion. As his narrative shows, the difficulties that evolution presents for Western religions are more apparent than real. Properly under. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0060175931
