4. Hmmm
Edited on Fri Feb-27-04 02:16 PM by pmbryant
If by 'opposing side' you mean the religious POV, then you may have a hard time finding such a 'balanced' book.

I am reading a new book now that is a critique of the faddish, pseudo-scientific "Intelligent Design" theory, but the author has a very definite and admitted bias in favor of the scientific theory of evolution. It is called, "God, the Devil, and Darwin" and is by Niall Shanks. I'm still too early in it to offer a recommendation about it.

I'll be paying attention to this thread to see what other books on this subject people recommend.

A book from the mid-1990s called "The Beak of the Finch" (author=??) has been on my 'to do' list for a while, but I have not read it yet.
