SUMMARY ç Evolution The Remarkable History of a Scientific Theory Very of the DNA double helix and to the triumphant neo Darwinian synthesis and rising sociobiology todayAlong the way Larson expertly places the scientific upheaval of evolution in cultural perspective the social and philosophical earthuake that was the French Revolution; the development in England of a laissez faire capitalism in tune with a Darwinian ethos of “survival of the fittest”; the emergence of Social Darwinism and the dark science of eugenics against a backdrop of industrial revolution; the American Christian backlash against evolutionism that culminated in the famous Scopes trial; and on to today’s world where religious fundamentalists litigate for the right to teach “creation science” alongside evolution in US public schools even as the theory itself continues to evolve in new and surprising directionsThroughout. I had first heard of this book while reading another book How I Changed My Mind about Evolution This book dealt with the testimonies of Christian scientists and theologians who had come to accept evolution as a theory with great explanatory power in the area of the diversity of life all the while being demonstrably consistent with theologically orthdox interpretations of the BibleAs one can ascertain from the subtitle of the book it is a history dealing with the origins and development of the theory of evolution It is precisely at this level that I would share my one potential criticism of the book What I mean is that the vast majority of the book deals with the one hundred year period between the year 1859 when Darwin s book On the Origin of Species was published and 1959 with scant references to people who espoused primitive theories of evolution prior to Darwin s book On top of this the modern era is really only addressed in the last two chapters with what seemed to me to be very little on the progress of the various mechanisms put forth under the umbrella term of evolutionThat being said one of the first things I enjoyed about the book continues from this last point in the preceding paragraph As an Evangelical Christian I have spent much of my time being inundated with Creationist definitions of evolution After reading this book one of the big points that has been driven home to me is that there is no one single consensus on how evolution works There is amongst scientists whether Christian or secular a consensus as to the reality of evolutions existence in nature yet the actual mechanics which drive it are debated to this day So what I have been exposed to is the reality that the one definition of evolution I have spent much of my life being indoctrinated with is truly closer to a straw man than reality in its essenceEven though that is the case another thing I found interesting and informative was the philosophical dangers present in accepting the theory of evolution The promotion of various race theories eugenics and social Darwinism as some of the resultant philosophical beliefs and practices of some evolutionary adherents is a sobering reality to which we must be alerted it is also something we must be willing to apprise without bias so that we may be able to fully appreciate the potential dangers of the evolutionary worldviewEven with that I found the book was fair in presenting the reality that numerous scientists throughout the development of evolutionary thinking maintained faith in a Creator with many remaining devout Christians It is precisely here that we see the real danger is not in the theory of evolution itself but rather it is in the individuals who choose to use the theory to promote thoroughly materialistic views on origins I was pleasantly surprised to see the book speak to this reality and express viewpoints from both sides Especially since this is a popular rather than Christian bookI enjoyed the brief glimpses we are given into the lives of the various individuals and events which were great turning points in the development of evolutionary theory as it progressed from something based on rather crude interpretations based on simple observations made in nature such as Darwin s finches to the underlying biological realities mankind has discovered in his growing understanding of genetics In the last chapter we are briefly introduced to Francis Collins author of The Language of God head of the human genome project and founder of the organization Biologos He is one of the scientists I mentioned who is an example of how religious and scientific thinking can be reconciled Mr Collins and the organization he founded are responsible for helping me to see that these are things which need not stand in opposition to each other but which can harmonize and inform each other so that we have a much deeper and beautiful picture of origins I felt that along these lines this book likewise presented an unbiased view of the development of the theory of evolution and the individuals utilized in its developmentThinking back on my earlier critiue I must confess that I am not well read on evolution Because of this I was looking for a book that would be a suitable introduction to this area of science and in this vein I do believe that this book accomplished that seeing as it presented what I believe is a concise readable and easily grasped rudimentary introduction to the history of evolutionary theory With this in mind I would recommend it to others who are looking for a book that will fill that niche The author has included copious footnotes as well as a section at the end of the book dedicated to facilitating further reading for those interested in pursuing deeper understanding in this area The Trouble With Jared faire capitalism in tune with a Darwinian ethos of “survival of the 10 Button Book fittest”; the emergence of Social Darwinism and the dark science of eugenics against a backdrop of industrial revolution; the American Christian backlash against evolutionism that culminated in the A Guide to The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot famous Scopes trial; and on to today’s world where religious Lettera a un bambino mai nato fundamentalists litigate Mecanismos de la Mediumnidad for the right to teach “creation science” alongside evolution in US public schools even as the theory itself continues to evolve in new and surprising directionsThroughout. I had Absalom Absalom first heard of this book while reading another book How I Changed My Mind about Evolution This book dealt with the testimonies of Christian scientists and theologians who had come to accept evolution as a theory with great explanatory power in the area of the diversity of life all the while being demonstrably consistent with theologically orthdox interpretations of the BibleAs one can ascertain Le salaire de la peur from the subtitle of the book it is a history dealing with the origins and development of the theory of evolution It is precisely at this level that I would share my one potential criticism of the book What I mean is that the vast majority of the book deals with the one hundred year period between the year 1859 when Darwin s book On the Origin of Species was published and 1959 with scant references to people who espoused primitive theories of evolution prior to Darwin s book On top of this the modern era is really only addressed in the last two chapters with what seemed to me to be very little on the progress of the various mechanisms put Underworld Different Worlds #1 forth under the umbrella term of evolutionThat being said one of the Eternity Ring first things I enjoyed about the book continues The Clean Up from this last point in the preceding paragraph As an Evangelical Christian I have spent much of my time being inundated with Creationist definitions of evolution After reading this book one of the big points that has been driven home to me is that there is no one single consensus on how evolution works There is amongst scientists whether Christian or secular a consensus as to the reality of evolutions existence in nature yet the actual mechanics which drive it are debated to this day So what I have been exposed to is the reality that the one definition of evolution I have spent much of my life being indoctrinated with is truly closer to a straw man than reality in its essenceEven though that is the case another thing I The Sentient found interesting and informative was the philosophical dangers present in accepting the theory of evolution The promotion of various race theories eugenics and social Darwinism as some of the resultant philosophical beliefs and practices of some evolutionary adherents is a sobering reality to which we must be alerted it is also something we must be willing to apprise without bias so that we may be able to A Lane to the Land of the Dead And Other Stories of the Supernatural Puffin Teenage Fiction fully appreciate the potential dangers of the evolutionary worldviewEven with that I Aux Etats Unis d'Afriue found the book was Rumen Microbiology fair in presenting the reality that numerous scientists throughout the development of evolutionary thinking maintained Mais Lucro faith in a Creator with many remaining devout Christians It is precisely here that we see the real danger is not in the theory of evolution itself but rather it is in the individuals who choose to use the theory to promote thoroughly materialistic views on origins I was pleasantly surprised to see the book speak to this reality and express viewpoints Ralph Pincus Occultist Extraordinaire The World of Ralph Pincus #1 from both sides Especially since this is a popular rather than Christian bookI enjoyed the brief glimpses we are given into the lives of the various individuals and events which were great turning points in the development of evolutionary theory as it progressed What a Carve Up from something based on rather crude interpretations based on simple observations made in nature such as Darwin s Looking for Garbo finches to the underlying biological realities mankind has discovered in his growing understanding of genetics In the last chapter we are briefly introduced to Francis Collins author of The Language of God head of the human genome project and Friday Night at Hodges' Cafe founder of the organization Biologos He is one of the scientists I mentioned who is an example of how religious and scientific thinking can be reconciled Mr Collins and the organization he Monster Hunter Legion founded are responsible Medea Stimmen for helping me to see that these are things which need not stand in opposition to each other but which can harmonize and inform each other so that we have a much deeper and beautiful picture of origins I Non fidarti di nessuno felt that along these lines this book likewise presented an unbiased view of the development of the theory of evolution and the individuals utilized in its developmentThinking back on my earlier critiue I must confess that I am not well read on evolution Because of this I was looking ILLICIT LOVER for a book that would be a suitable introduction to this area of science and in this vein I do believe that this book accomplished that seeing as it presented what I believe is a concise readable and easily grasped rudimentary introduction to the history of evolutionary theory With this in mind I would recommend it to others who are looking The Glenn Gould Reader for a book that will గోన గన్నా రెడ్డి Gona Ganna reddy fill that niche The author has included copious Mystery of Metru Nui footnotes as well as a section at the end of the book dedicated to Shifter Wonderland Anthology facilitating Picture Theory Essays on Verbal and Visual Representation further reading
