BOOK REVIEW: Why Evolution is True

Well, I am not science-inclined, but I have always felt woefully uneducated in the topic of evolution. It is such a hot topic in education and religion, I felt I owed it to myself to get the facts.

Fortunately, this book is very easy to understand for the “non-science” types. Plus, right on the back cover are glowing recommendations from three of my favorite authors, Dawkins, Hitchens, and Pinker. That was enough to convince me to buy the book.

I read it in about two weeks, and I found it fascinating.

Yep, the facts that support evolution are all there. There’s no denying it. But I don’t get all the fuss that the religionists make over it. Clearly, when the facts clash with religion, religionists just throw reason and facts to the wind and claim that the facts of science are not true. Unbelievable!

If you feel the need to learn what evolution is all about, this is a great book to read. The book presents evidence from many different branches of science.
