FOR MORE THAN 150 YEARS, continuous debate has swirled around the topic of evolution. From Darwin to Dawkins, extensive scientific evidence has been presented for evolution, yet almost half of contemporary society still isn’t convinced. The Scientific Approach to Evolution provides a rational new perspective on this debate. Scientific evidence is not all created equally. Some forms of evidence provide only low confidence, while other forms of evidence provide high confidence. Rob Stadler describes a compelling approach to determine the level of confidence and applies it to the commonly cited evidence for evolution. When high-confidence evidence is appropriately prioritized over low-confidence evidence, the result is a profound new view of evolution—one that they did not teach you in biology.
This book provides a unique analysis of the common evidence cited in favor of evolution and asks the critical question: have we overstated the conclusions by using low-confidence science to make broad scientific claims? This is an essential must-read for science educators and students of science. – JOE DEWEESE, Ph.D. – Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Lipscomb University
This book is a breath of fresh air in what can be a contentious debate. The book is confluent, logical, well-written and organized, and easy to read with its plain examples. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the topic. – PHILLIP GERK, Ph.D. – Vice Chairman Associate Professor Department of Pharmaceutics, Virginia Commonwealth University
