Evolution and Creationism A two-part presentation
Part I – The Theory of Evolution
Since it was published by Charles Darwin nearly 150 years ago, the theory of evolution has been supported by a mounting body of scientific evidence. Today it is recognized by most as a likely explanation for the development of life on Earth from its beginnings and for the diversity of species. Evolution is taught as part of biology and science courses in numerous schools, colleges and universities around the world.
