Summary
Despite the title, this is a serious primer on the theory of evolution. Evolutionary biologist/philosopher of science Ayala (U. of California, Irvine) presents an accessible introduction to Darwin's theory as the organizing principle of modern biology, what scientists mean by "theory," supporting evidence, and mechanisms of evolution. He maintains that evolution and religious beliefs need not be in conflict because they are different domains of knowledge. A bibliographic essay suggests further reading.
