SUMMARY

Praise For The Battle Over the Meaning of Everything "The Battle Over the Meaning of Everything is magnificent-by far the best depiction I have seen of America's culture war that pits religious concepts of the supernatural against the materialism of science. Slack's non-polemical narrative skillfully reveals the ins and outs of creationism, intelligent design, evolutionary biology, and the nature of modern science in clear and compelling prose. Slack's own story of trying to understand his father's religious position stands as a poignant microcosm of the larger debate-adding a personal touch that helps bring into focus the frustration and sadness that is often present, but usually not acknowledged, as the culture war rages on." -Niles Eldredge, curator, division of paleontology; curator, Darwin exhibition, The American Museum of Natural History "Gordy Slack's beautifully written The Battle Over the Meaning of Everything should be on absolutely everyone's must read list. Although Slack does not conceal his own evolutionary commitments, he is balanced and fair, showing above all that this is a cultural battle and not simply one of science versus religion. The book is a terrific read." -Michael Ruse, Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy and director of the program in the history and philosophy of science, Florida State University, Tallahassee "The Battle Over the Meaning of Everything is a well-told tale of the clash of two cultures-scientific evolution and intelligent design creationism-in a federal court of law. Gordy Slack is a gifted storyteller. If the conversation between science and religion is of interest to you, get this book. The Battle is a pleasure to read." -Francisco J. Ayala, university professor and Donald Bren Professor of Biological Sciences, University of California, IrvineSlack, Gordy is the author of 'Battle over the Meaning of Everything Evolution, Intelligent Design, and a School Board in Dover, Pa', published 2007 under ISBN 9780787987862 and ISBN 0787987867.
