Summary
Follows the battle to reconcile scientific fact with religious faith with regard to Darwin's theory of evolution, from the supporting theories of fellow scientists, to the opposing voices of clergymen, to twenty-first-century supporters of Intelligent Design. Through quotations from letters and other contemporary sources, readers will meet the personalities and ideas involved in the debate. They will also examine some of the legal cases that brought evolution into the U.S. courtroom
