    Why evolution is more than just a theory: it is a fact. In all the current highly publicized debates about creationism and its descendant "intelligent design", there is an element of the controversy that is rarely mentioned: the evidence, the empirical truth of evolution by natural selection.

    Overall

    This audio-book was just what I was looking for, and more. I am very interested in Evolution but not formally educated in the sciences. I wanted to really understand Natural Selection and be able to explain what I always felt: that Evolution by Natural Selection is as much a "fact" as any accepted but not totally provable scientific theory such as "The Laws of Gravity". Warning: Do not listen to this if you are a proponent of Intelligent Design or a Creationist and do not want to be convinced otherwise. I'm not being facetious or demeaning. The author takes on all the ID arguments against Natural Selection I've ever heard and more and gives detailed, scientific, and non-judgmental rebuttals to each one that should be very understandable to a moderately intelligent and open minded individual. In addition, I just learned so much about the scientific method in general and was enthralled by so many interesting facts and jaw-dropping anecdotes. This is one that parents would want to share with their children or teachers with their students. The most important lesson I learned is: Science is constantly questioning it's theories, even after they are called facts. Nothing is above reproach and that's what makes science honest. Reputations are born from disproving established theories. Believing there is only one "Answer" and only looking for arguments to prove it is neither scientific nor honest and I believe the author very convincingly brings home that point.
