Creationism is the antagonist to the theory of evolution first presented by Charles Darwin a hundred and fifty years ago. Based on his book Why Evolution is True, Jerry Coyne discusses evolutionary theory in detail and presents the facts that support it. Coyne explains that according to the theory of evolution, one organism, a bacterium, gave rise to all the others and the vast numbers of complex organisms throughout the world today evolved over time into their present forms. This argument is supported by a variety of evidence from different areas, especially the fossil record, the presence of vestigial organs, embryology, bad design, biogeography, and natural selection. Finally, Coyne addresses the fact that evolutionary theory is rejected by large numbers of people because this idea is incompatible with their religious beliefs.
Jerry Coyne is professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution…
