Darwin's brave new world( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Darwin's Brave New World is the story of how four young voyagers to the southern hemisphere, Charles Darwin, Joseph Hooker, Thomas Huxley and Alfred Russel Wallace revolutionised science and gave birth to an extraordinary theory about the evolution of life on earth. Darwin's voyage to the southern hemisphere in the 1830s changed him from a directionless rich kid bound for a career in the Church, into one of the most incendiary thinkers of our age. This 5-year voyage stunned and stimulated the young Darwin; the biodiversity, the exoticism, even the brutality, of the southern hemisphere, was in staggering comparison to the England he had just left 7F 13 and it laid the foundations of his very 'dangerous idea': evolution by means of natural selection. Featuring a cast of Australian and Canadian actors and commentators such as controversial author and Oxford academic, Richard Dawkins, the Canadian scientist and broadcaster, David Suzuki and Australian scholar and author, Iain McCalman, from the University of Sydney, this brilliant drama-documentary tells the story of Charles Darwin's struggle to produce one of the greatest scientific theories of our age and the roles played in it by Hooker, Huxley and Wallace - Darwin's fellow voyagers to the southern hemisphere. It is a story of a group of young men who had a new and radical vision of the world and were possessed of the courage to pursue it

Faith versus fact why science and religion are incompatible by Jerry A Coyne( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his provocative new book, evolutionary biologist Jerry A. Coyne lays out in clear, dispassionate detail why the toolkit of science, based on reason and empirical study, is reliable, while that of religion-including faith, dogma, and revelation-leads to incorrect, untestable, or conflicting conclusions. Coyne is responding to a national climate in which over half of Americans don't believe in evolution (and congressmen deny global warming), and warns that religious prejudices and strictures in politics, education, medicine, and social policy are on the rise. Extending the bestselling works of Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Christopher Hitchens, he demolishes the claims of religion to provide verifiable "truth" by subjecting those claims to the same tests we use to establish truth in science. Coyne irrefutably demonstrates the grave harm-to individuals and to our planet-in mistaking faith for fact in making the most important decisions about the world we live in

Camden County Highway Plan by Jerry A Coyne( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Camden County Highway Plan was prepared as an element to the update of the overall Camden County Master Plan. The Highway Plan sets the direction for highway infrastructure -- and particularly its own county route network -- to keep pace with changes expected by 2040. The Master Plan provides the authority for managing the change that will come. Seven significant physical/operational mobility improvement projects, totaling $78 million, were identified along the county route network as specific recommendations to the overall county Master Plan. Of these -- the proposed county-wide interconnected and coordinated traffic signal system ($30 million) is the smartest and farthest reaching. The project was conducted alongside the development of the Land Use Plan element and integrated findings from the Bicycling & Multi-Use Trails Plan and Farmland Preservation Plan elements. The project also delivered a linked GIS-asset management database including updated inventories of county roads, bridges, and traffic signals, and relevant outputs from the planning study
