Evolution for beginners
I'm an atheist that has been studying religion debates for a couple of months. I've become genuinely interested in studying evolution but I don't even know where to begin. I don't know anything about biology. There are so many books on the subject and I was just wondering if there are any books anyone would recommend that cover the basic fundamental issues. I've listened to a lot of radio interviews and know a lot about the politics of it, how creationism is an intellectual problem in our time. I still have a lot of unanswered questions floating around in my head about evolution, how it is a fact, what evidence we have, what we know, and what controversy there is. I'm just looking for some short books that cover those issues. I don't want dig too deep into it.
I know there is a lot of good information on the web, but I can't stand reading on my computer. I have to zone out and read somewhere. Any help would be great. Thanks.
"Every true faith is infallible -- It performs what the believing person hopes to find in it. But it does not offer the least support for the establishing of an objective truth. Here the ways of men divide. If you want to achieve peace of mind and happiness, have faith. If you want to be a disciple of truth, then search." - Nietzsche
