The Arguments For and Against Neo-Darwinism. by Stephen . Scott Minnich; Jonathan Moneymaker; Paul A. Nelson; and Ralph Seelke Meyer. The role of the fossil record, biogeography and anatomical, molecular and embryonic similarities are rolled out to buttress the theory of universal common descent.

Explore Evolution: The Arguments For and Against Neo-Darwinism is a controversial biology textbook written by a group of intelligent design supporters and published in 2007. Its promoters describe it as aimed at helping educators and students to discuss "the controversial aspects of evolutionary theory that are discussed openly in scientific books and journals but which are not widely reported in textbooks

Jonathan Moneymaker, Ralph Seelke.

Jonathan Moneymaker, Ralph Seelke. Its authors include Discovery Institute Senior Fellows Stephen Meyer, Scott Minnich, and Paul Nelson, as well as university biology professor Ralph Seelke. The purpose of Explore Evolution, is to examine the scientific controversy about Darwin’s theory, and in particular, the contemporary version of the theory known as neo-Darwinism. Paul A. Nelson is currently a Senior Fellow of the Discovery Institute and Adjunct Professor in the Master of Arts Program in Science & Religion at Biola University.

The purpose of Explore Evolution is to examine the scientific controversy about Darwin's theory, and in particular, the contemporary version of the theory known as neo-Darwinism. Whether you are a teacher, a student, or a parent, this book will help you understand what Darwin's theory of evolution is, why many scientists find it persuasive, and why other scientists question the theory or some key aspects of it.

Sometimes, scientists find that the same evidence can be explained in more than one way. When there are competing theories, reasonable people can (and do) disagree about which theory best explains the evidence. Furthermore, in the historical sciences, neither side can directly verify its claims about past events. Fortunately, even though we can't directly verify these claims, we can test them. How? First, we gather as much evidence as possible and look at it carefully. Then, we compare the competing theories in light of how well they explain the evidence.

Looking at the evidence and comparing the competing explanations will provide the most reliable path to discovering which theory, if any, gives the best account of the evidence at hand. In science, it is ultimately the evidence-and all of the evidence-that should tell us which theory offers the best explanation. This book will help you explore that evidence, and we hope it will stimulate your interest in these questions as you weigh the competing arguments.

Explore Evolution is the place to start if you want to enter into the discussion between the Neo-Darwinists and the Intelligent Design people over the controversial topic of evolution.

The book is well written, organized, and easy to understand.
Evolution is first defined using three ways of using the word then the book is divided into its constituent parts: Universal Common Descent and the "Creative" Power of natural selection in conjunction with random mutations.

The outline of the book looks like this:
Universal Common Descent: Arguments for and Against
Fossil Succession
Anatomical Homology
Molecular Homology
Embryology
Biogeography
The Creative Power of Natural Selection: Arguments for and Against
Natural Selection
Natural Selection and Mutation
A New Challenge: Arguments for and Against
Molecular Machines
Special Studies
Natural Selection as Survival of the Fittest
What Fossils Can't tell You
Conclusion
The Nature of Dissent in Science

Just what I wanted, at a fair price, on time delivery, and NO hassle!
  • inform
Thank you.
  • Liarienen
Nice supplement to a pro-evolution science book to show areas where evolution does not offer the best explanation.
  • Munimand
Book in perfect condition, thank you! A+++++ :)
  • Quamar
Very easy to follow and balanced treatment on the issue of evolution

Science is the goose that laid the golden egg for the west, and unfortunately most biology texts present a taxidermied version of science where you are just supposed to accept the conclusions presented. Here the scientific dialog is ALIVE, not dead! If your children are going into anything touching biology you must get this book.

Evidence and scientific argument abound in this book, which is why the attacks on it have been mostly name calling. So what if someone says it's "creationism in a cheap suit" (which it is not), don't be intimidated by the guys in white coats. What does the evidence say for both sides? If someone doesn't like this book do they bring evidence and arguments on how to interpret that evidence, or do they bring insults and question motives?
A game-changing approach to education. As a college professor who teaches evolution I am now committed to using this textbook. Why? Because it is the only balanced and fair treatment of the subject in print. When I teach philosophy every text I use provides arguments for and against every single position whether your dealing with epistemology, ethics, free will etc., yet for some reason the majority of the biology texts out there only show one perspective and fail to educate students regarding important ideas that are out there. This is not a "religious" or "Christian" textbook in any way and anyone who says so is propagating a straw-man/red herring argument. This book shows why some scientists believe certain things, and why some scientists doubt certain things: period.
