Only a theory? Dogs, cows, and cabbages The primrose path to macro-evolution Silence and slow time Before our very eyes Missing link? What do you mean, 'missing'? Missing persons? Missing no longer You did it yourself in nine months The ark of the continents The tree of cousinship History written all over us Arms races and 'evolutionary theodicy' There is grandeur in this view of life Appendix. The history-deniers.
Sifting through rich layers of scientific evidence, Dawkins' "The Greatest Show on Earth" is a stunning counterattack on advocates of "Intelligent Design," explaining the evidence for evolution while exposing the absurdities of the creationist "argument."
