The University of California, Irvine's Francisco Ayala highlights the main themes of the recently released Science, Evolution, and Creationism in a PNAS editorial. The new book, he says, is divvied into three chapters: on the process of evolution and science as a discipline, evidence for evolution from multiple disciplines, and an examination of creationism and intelligent design, to highlight the scientific and legal reasons they should not be taught in public school science classes. Ayala says that the book aims to answer questions from people who are skeptical about evolution or who wonder if evolution is compatible with their religion.
