While the mechanisms of evolution are still under investigation, scientists universally accept that the cosmos, our planets, and life evolved and continue to evolve. Yet the teaching of evolution to school children is still contentious. In this text, the Nationalof Academy of Sciences states unequivocally that creationalism has no place in any science curriculum at any level. It explores the nature of science, reviews the evidence for the origin of the universe and Earth, and explains the current scientific understanding of biological evolution. This edition includes new insights from astronomy and molecular biology.
