Despite the continued cultural controversy in the US, evolution continues to be a cornerstone of technology. during this publication, 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 and 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 lifestyles Begin?• Can One think in Evolution and God?

This to-the-point booklet 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 fundamental technological know-how that underlies evolutionary concept, explains how the method works, and soundly makes the case for why evolution isn't a chance to religion.

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