A preview of Evolution vs. Creationism

Evolution vs. Creationism, second edition

NCSE is pleased to offer a free preview (PDF) of the classic Evolution vs. Creationism: An Introduction, second edition (Greenwood Press/University of California Press, 2009), by NCSE's founding executive director Eugenie C. Scott. The preview consists of chapter 3, "Beliefs: Religion, Creationism, and Naturalism," in which Scott addresses the question, "What are the relationships among religion, science, and philosophical naturalism?" The chapter also includes her celebrated "creation/evolution continuum." 

Edward J. Larson described Evolution vs. Creationism as "an invaluable resource for those seeking to understand the American controversy over creationism and evolution," adding that it "offers an insightful overview of the American controversy over teaching evolution along with a representative sampling of short excerpts from both creationists and evolutionists. By reading it, teachers, parents, students and the public can be better prepared to answer creationist claims and defend the teaching of evolution."
