Despite the continued cultural controversy in the USA, evolution is still a cornerstone of technological know-how. during this booklet, Francisco J. Ayala -- an evolutionary biologist, member of the nationwide Academy of Sciences, and winner of the nationwide Medal of technology and the Templeton Prize -- cuts to the chase in a bold try to tackle, in nontechnical language, six perennial questions on evolution:

? Am I a Monkey?? Why Is Evolution a Theory?? what's DNA?? Do All Scientists settle for Evolution?? How Did existence Begin?? Can One think in Evolution and God?

This to-the-point publication solutions every one of those questions with strength. Ayala's sometimes biting essays refuse to lend credence to disingenuous rules and arguments. He lays out the elemental technological know-how that underlies evolutionary concept, explains how the method works, and soundly makes the case for why evolution isn't a risk to religion.

Brief, incisive, topical, authoritative, Am I a Monkey? will take you an afternoon to learn and an entire life to ponder.
