The Triumph of Evolution Summary


The Triumph of Evolution: And the Failure of Creationism by Niles Eldredge

Why is there so much anti-evolution sentiment at the start of the Third Millennium? Why does the debate that began in 1859, when Charles Darwin established the study of evolution, still rage in 2000? In this text, Niles Eldredge presents an examination of the creation-evolution confrontation. He reveals the creationists basic argument and their strategies for advancing it, and counters charges that the study of evolution cannot be scientific and that is leads to the demise of the family, religion and traditional values.

The Triumph of Evolution Reviews


`I can't imagine a better book by a finer scientist and writer on a more vital and contemporary subject. Eldredge refutes creationism with the best tools of scientific facts and logic but then shows how all good science cannot debase, but can only complement, our search to find ethical values and to grasp the meaning of our existence.' - Stephen Jay Gould
