In his provocative new book, evolutionary biologist Jerry A. Coyne lays out in clear, dispassionate detail why the toolkit of science, based on reason & empirical study, is reliable, while that of religion - including faith, dogma, & 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 (& congressmen deny global warming), & warns that religious prejudices & strictures in politics, education, medicine, & social policy are on the rise.
Extending the best-selling works of Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, & 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 & to our planet - in mistaking faith for fact in making the most important decisions about the world we live in.
