Why Evolution is True by Jerry A. Coyne

President Doti's recommended reading is well worth it in this case. Coyne does a nice job of combining geological, molecular and biological evidence to show why evolution is as true as any other accepted scientific theory. My only complaint was a consistent use of arguments in the vein of "Would an all knowing creator have done...?" The scientific facts do a much better job than this line of logic which seems impossible to argue.
