About the Authors
D. De Jong

Despite the ever-increasing wealth of data that amply support the theory of evolution, attempts to enforce a religious interpretation of how humans and other life forms appeared on earth have become more frequent in recent years, even in “First World” countries such as the U.S.A. In good time, the National Academy of Sciences has just published the third edition of a book on evolution and creationism. Tailored to help us all respond objectively to attempts to include creationism in school science curricula, this new edition incorporates recent fossil discoveries, along with the vast genetics knowledge that has accumulated from the human genome project and other modern molecular genetics studies. Nicely organized and illustrated, this book is both simple enough for a junior high school student to understand and sufficiently informative to help college level students and the lay public understand evolution and how it relates to the modern world.  Read More. . .
