Science, Evolution, and Creationism

from The National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine
Washington, DC: National Academies Press, 2007. 88 pages.

Designed to give the public a comprehensive and up-to-date picture of the current scientific understanding of evolution and its importance in the science classroom, Science, Evolution, and Creationism is twice as long as the second edition (published in 1999 as Science and Creationism), and teems with new examples of the predictive power and practical importance of evolution. Addressing creationism in its various forms, it concludes, "No scientific evidence supports these viewpoints," and insists, "Given the importance of science in all aspects of modern life, the science curriculum should not be undermined with nonscientific material."
