The Mythology of Evolution

The Mythology of Evolution - Chris Bateman full review article: http://www.eveningoflight.nl/subspecie/2012/07/10/science-stories-the-mythology-of-evolution/
Summing up, there are many reasons why The Mythology of Evolution is a commendable book. It is an accessible read, but with a firm basis in science and philosophy, and a vision of current and future intellectual struggles that seems fair and hopeful. I believe the book will be most appealing to those people (religious or not) who already value freedom and peace above the authority to proclaim truth. I hope that these people are more numerous than at first appears.
