Evolution in Plain and Simple English: BookCaps Study Guide
Ever since it was famously propounded by Charles Darwin, evolution has been one of the most influential scientific doctrines at all time. And even though it’s been almost 100 years since the Scopes trial, evolution continues to be one of the most controversial scientific doctrines of all time.
But in truth, the basic concept of evolution—the idea that species change over time to adapt to their environment—is quite simple, even obvious, once one thinks of it. After reading this book, you should be able not only to understand the basic concepts of evolution but to appreciate both what it does, and what it does not, accomplish.
