Evolution and Christianity

"Nothing in Biology Makes Sense
Except in the Light of Evolution"

Theodosius Dobzhanski


To the User: This web site is intended to help my students succeed in my course. I have included the syllabus and tentative schedule. Please inform me of errors via e-mail!

A copy of the text is on reserve in the Library.


Tentative Schedule


Recent Books: As an extremely active area of debate in the "culture wars," particularly in the U.S., evolution vs. fundamentalist Christianity has resulted in a variety of books. I am listing some of the latest of which I have personal knowledge below.

Web Resources: There are a vast number of sites on the web representing discussing evolution. I have linked a couple of resource sites which may be useful to understand what the modern theory of evolution is about.

Video: The HSU library has both the PBS series, evolution: a journey into where we're from and where we're going and the Nova episode Judgement Day: Intelligent Design on Trial, available in DVD format.
