"The modern controversy has roots that go far back in the history of human thought, contend Moore, Mark Decker, and Sehoya Cotner (all biology, U. of Minnesota-Minneapolis), and they begin in 2700 BCE in Egypt to trace some of the ideas and ways of thinking about the degree to which the physical world is self-contained. The chronology extends to 2009 and the discovery of what is now thought to be the oldest human remains. Marginal symbols indicate such categories as legislation and legal cases, argument from design and Intelligent Design, the age of earth, and social Darwinism and eugenics." --Reference & Research Book News"This is an essential and frequently fascinating look at the long history of the evolution-creationism debate...it is a great introduction to the subject.
