Publisher's Summary

Sparked by a provocative comment to BigThink.com last fall, and fueled by a highly controversial debate with Creation Museum curator Ken Ham, Bill Nye's campaign to confront the scientific shortcoming of creationism has exploded in just a few months into a national crusade. In this book, he expands the points he has made, and claims that this debate is not so much about religion versus science, as about the nature of science itself.
With infectious enthusiasm, he reveals the mechanics of evolutionary theory, explains how it is rooted in the testable and verifiable scientific method, and why it is therefore a sound explanation of our beginning. He argues passionately that to continue to assert otherwise, to continue to insist that creationism has a place in the science classroom is harmful not only to our children, but to the future of the greater world as well.

Unmistakable enthusiasm and knowledge

Nye's approach to arguing in favour of the science-based, fact-led approach to understanding our existence is commendable.
He clearly juxtaposes the most prominent arguments deployed by both sides and, it must be admitted, with a degree of frustration and incredulity, dismisses much of what Creationists have to offer to the debate.
He ably deals with the misrepresentation of science, most prominently the Second Law of Thermodynamics, by those who see God's will in all acts, and relates, with some humour, various stories from his own experience of dealing with such people in real life.
He plants his flag firmly in the punctuated equilibrium side of the Stephen J. Gould et al/Richard Dawkins et al argument, proposing that Gould's work makes most sense to him given the evidence to hand.
This is probably one of the best quick studies of the this contentious debate available on Audible.
