Description: "A book to help readers to understand the nature, history and passions behind the debate over scientific and religious versions of creation and human origins. " "Darwin and the Bible: The Cultural Confrontation" is about the history and nature of the disputes over human origins that arose with the publication of Charles Darwin's book, "Origin of Species" in 1859. Rather than focusing solely on the scientific background, the readings provide also the, historical, theological, social and political backgrounds of the debate. The essays in the reader are divided into three sets. The first set addresses how scientists and theologians have tried to resolve the apparent contradictions between Darwin and the Bible. The second set examines the historical and cultural settings that defined, often very differently, the parameters of the debate and the implications they had for both religion and science and the influence of the debate globally. The third set describes how the debate came to center on education and explores the impacts on both teachers and students. All but three of the essays were prepared especially for this volume. Each of the authors in this volume addresses the debate about evolution, either in the classroom or in their personal lives, in their own ways. They would not always agree with each other (even the editors, one a physical anthropologist, the other a cultural anthropologist, don't always agree). But the debate often serves as a window into our own culture. Science and religion are key and essential elements of our lives, regardless of how each of us individually perceives them; yet their influence is often contradictory and contentious. Students and teachers are provided with information to stimulate debate and discussion and to understand the cultural roots of the debate over Darwin and the Bible.
