"According to British scholar Conor Cunningham, the debate today between religion and evolution has been hijacked by extremists: on one side stand fundamentalist believers who reject evolution outright; on the opposing side are fundamentalist atheists who claim that Darwin's theory rules out the possibility of God. Both sides are dead wrong , argues Cunningham, who is at once a Christian and a firm believer in the theory of evolution. In Darwin's Pious Idea Cunningham puts forth a trenchant, compelling case for both creation and evolution, drawing skillfully on an array of philosophical, theological, historical, and scientific sources to buttress his arguments."
Cunningham's book represents a much needed attempt at a middle ground in the raging debates between creationism and scientism, and would give pause in even the most strident members of either camp.
Unfortunately the inside cover of this book features extensive graffiti and writing, and there are pencil notes and lines within, thus the significant reduction in price. However, the content remains as illuminating as ever, and well worth a purchase: if content is your priority over condition, then this book at its current price is a veritable steal!
