The Evolution Debate

Darwinism vs. Intelligent Design

Series: Issues in Focus Today

By Sherri Mabry Gordon

Some Americans say that human beings are the product of evolution, and others claim that an intelligent designer must be behind life on Earth. The controversy has even focused on what should be taught in public schools. Author Sherri Mabry Gordon presents the arguments on both sides and shows how religion, politics, law, and science interact to affect what students learn and what people believe.
