Abstract:

Evolution is often described as a "theory." While this is certainly technically true, it is misleading to dismiss evolution as "just a theory" (an unfounded idea), as opponents of evolution like to do. In this work of popular science, the author demonstrates that there are few more well-established facts in the scientific canon than that life evolved on Earth. The book also covers new discoveries, many of which have occurred in the last twenty years
