Evolution Stands Faith Up: Reflections on Evolution's Wars by Guillermo Paz-y-Mino-C

"...Shot-gun marriages between evolution and faith have never worked, despite the tradition of pointing the barrel at evolution's head. The truth is that evolution likes it single. Free, with no stoppers of thought or restrains on logic. And when lured unknowingly into the altar by those who see facts and fiction compatible, evolution has consistently stood belief up and walked away, sometimes run, toward its secular turf... [The] dream of arranging evolution's wedding with belief will remain dormant for as long as evolution is awake." Provocative, intriguing, a contemporary and concise analysis of the clashes between science and faith: In this book, Guillermo Paz-y-Miño-C examines the societal sequels in public education, the future of America's science and academia of believing in a deity. For this evolutionary biologist, educator and public speaker, "science is [the only] refined device for resolving ordinary curiosity and a powerful liberator of superstition. He thinks of science as "the subsistence kit to defeat re-emerging fundamentalism" in the world." This open-ended book concludes: "Once embraced by all, this truly universal language —scientific rationalism/empiricism and evolution— shall lead us to a more cohesive understanding of nature and of our amazingly diverse human condition. Humanity's ultimate challenge will be to collectively embrace reality, with no stoppers of thought or restrains on logic."
