Evolution and Christian faith reflections of an evolutionary biologist by Joan Roughgarden( )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"I'm an evolutionary biologist and a Christian," states Stanford professor Joan Roughgarden. From that perspective, she offers an elegant, deeply satisfying reconciliation of the theory of evolution and the wisdom of the Bible. The result is an accessible and intelligent context for a Christian vision of the world that embraces science.--[book jacket]

Evolution's rainbow : diversity, gender, and sexuality in nature and people by Joan Roughgarden( Book )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book, the author challenges accepted wisdom about gender identity and sexual orientation. She takes on the medical establishment, the Bible, social science - and even Darwin himself. She leads the reader through a ... discussion of diversity in gender and sexuality among fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals, including primates. She argues that principal elements of Darwinian sexual selection theory are false and suggests a new theory that emphasizes social inclusion and control of access to resources and mating opportunity. She disputes a range of scientific and medical concepts, including Wilson's genetic determinism of behavior, evolutionary psychology, the existence of a gay gene, the role of parenting in determining gender identity, and Dawkins's "selfish gene" as the driver of natural selection. She dares social science to respect the agency and rationality of diverse people shows that many cultures across the world and throughout history accommodate people we label today as lesbian, gay, and transgendered and calls on the Christian religion to acknowledge the Bible's many passages endorsing diversity in gender and sexuality. In the book, she concludes with bold recommendations for improving education in biology, psychology, and medicine for democratizing genetic engineering and medical practice and for building a public monument to affirm diversity as one of our nation's defining principles

The genial gene deconstructing Darwinian selfishness by Joan Roughgarden( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond belief science, reason, religion & survival ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Just 40 years after a famous TIME magazine cover asked "Is God Dead?" the answer appears to be a resounding "No!" According to a survey by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life in a recent issue of Foreign Policy magazine, "God is Winning". Religions are increasingly a geopolitical force to be reckoned with. Fundamentalist movements - some violent in the extreme - are growing. Science and religion are at odds in the classrooms and courtrooms. And a return to religious values is widely touted as an antidote to the alleged decline in public morality. After two centuries, could this be twilight for the Enlightenment project and the beginning of a new age of unreason? Will faith and dogma trump rational inquiry, or will it be possible to reconcile religious and scientific worldviews? Can evolutionary biology, anthropology and neuroscience help us to better understand how we construct beliefs, and experience empathy, fear and awe? Can science help us create a new rational narrative as poetic and powerful as those that have traditionally sustained societies? Can we treat religion as a natural phenomenon? Can we be good without God? And if not God, then what? This is a critical moment in the human situation, and The Science Network in association with the Crick-Jacobs Center brought together an extraordinary group of scientists and philosophers to explore answers to these questions".--Website

Sexual diversity in the animal kingdom by Joan Roughgarden( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Prof. Roughgarden of Stanford University thinks Charles Darwin made a terrible mistake. Not about "natural selection", but about his other great theory about "sexual selection". According to Roughgarden, sexual selection can't explain the homosexuality that's been documented in nearly 500 different vertebrate species so far. By ignoring all these gay animals, she says, Darwin misunderstood the basic nature of sexuality."
