The origin of species : creationism and evolution( Visual )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Charles Darwin visited the Amazonian rainforest and the Galapagos Islands in 1835 he, as well as most of the scientific community of his day, believed in creationism. Come with us to these same sites today to see why scientists abandoned the theory of special creation and replaced it with evolution by natural selection. Unlike most programs on evolution, this one does not flinch from explaining clearly and convincingly why creationism was rejected by the scientific community over one hundred years ago. The program also explains the differences between fact and theory in science; shows how there are lively differences about details of evolution theory; shows why sciences today from astronomy to nuclear physics use the knowledge of evolutionary change as basic data in their on-going work
