Overview

“Take one man who rejects authority and religion, and leads a punk band. Take another man who wonders whether vertebrates arose in rivers or in the ocean….Put them together, what do you get? Greg Graffin, and this uniquely fascinating book.” —Jared Diamond, author of Guns, Germs, and Steel

Anarchy Evolution is a provocative look at the collision between religion and science, by an author with unique authority: UCLA lecturer in Paleontology, and founding member of Bad Religion, Greg Graffin. Alongside science writer Steve Olson (whose Mapping Human History was a National Book Award finalist) Graffin delivers a powerful discussion sure to strike a chord with readers of Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion or Christopher Hitchens God Is Not Great. Bad Religion die-hards, newer fans won over during the band’s 30th Anniversary Tour, and anyone interested in this increasingly important debate should check out this treatise on science from the god of punk rock.

Anarchy Evolution: Faith, Science, and Bad Religion in a World Without God 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 42 reviews.

I must first admit I have been a bad religion fan for many years so my opinion is likely to be biased. However, Anarchy Evolution is a fascinting and very personal look at the life of a very influential individual that anyone will enjoy. Graffin is also engaging in his descriptions and explainations about the process of evolution. I further applaud his effort to question authority even within the science of evolution. It is indeed by questioning and punching holes into existing scientific theory that makes them stronger, more well rounded and better understood.

This book was very original. It does not get bogged down with religious arguments or become stiffed by unreadable science terms. Great book to read and think about. Smooth read and very enlightening.
