Overview

Most people know Greg Graffin as the lead singer of the punk band Bad Religion, but few know that he also received a PhD from Cornell University and teaches evolution at the University of California at Los Angeles. In Anarchy Evolution, Graffin argues that art and science have a deep connection. As an adolescent growing up when "drugs, sex, and trouble could be had on any given night," Graffin discovered that the study of evolution provided a framework through which he could make sense of the world.

In this provocative and personal book, he describes his own coming of age as an artist and the formation of his naturalist worldview on questions involving God, science, and human existence. While the battle between religion and science is often displayed in the starkest of terms, Anarchy Evolution provides fresh and nuanced insights into the long-standing debate about atheism and the human condition. It is a book for anyone who has ever wondered if God really exists.

    Terrific

    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.

    Great read-makes you think

    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.
