The recent massive attack by fundamentalist Christians on the teaching of evolution in the schools has left scientists indignant and somewhat bewildered. Creationist arguments have seemed to them a compound of ignorance and malevolence, and, indeed, there has been both confusion and dishonesty in the creationist attack. First, there has been a confusion, partly deliberate, of the fact that organism have evolved with theories about the detailed mechanics of the process. The facts of evolution are clear and are not disputed by any serious scientific worker.

Review: Scientists Confront Creationism: Intelligent Design and Beyond

User Review  - Matt Young - Goodreads

This small book packs a humongous punch. From Physics to Biology (and everything in between), this book does a great job informing the reader as to why we know evolution is true. It gives good intro to Creationist argument and then swiftly lays them to rest. Highly recommended. Read full review
