Opponents to teaching the theory of evolution declare that it is only a theory and not a fact; and that science relies on observation, replication, and experimentation, but nobody has seen the origin of the universe or the evolution of species, nor have these events been replicated in the laboratory or by experiment. In everyday speech, a theory is considered to be an imperfect fact. In science, however, a theory is based on a body of knowledge. This free selection from Evolution in Perspective addresses these controversial issues and includes the Table of Contents, and a Foreward section.
