Most people know Greg Graffin as the lead singer of the punk band Bad Religion, but few know that he also has a Ph.D. and teaches evolution at UCLA. Here, Graffin argues that art and science have a deep connection. As an adolescent growing up when "drugs, sex, and trouble could be had on any given night," Graffin discovered that the study of evolution provided a framework through which he could make sense of the world. In this provocative and personal book, Graffin describes his own coming of age as an artist, as well as the formation of his naturalist worldview on questions involving God, science, and human meaning. While the fight between religion and science is often displayed in the starkest of terms, Graffin provides fresh and nuanced insights into the long-standing debates about atheism and the human condition.--From publisher description.


Take one man who rejects authority and religion, and leads a punk band. Take another man who wonders whether vertebrates arose in rivers or in the ocean, is fascinated by evolution, creativity, and Ice Age animals. Put them together, what do you get? Greg Graffin, and this uniquely fascinating book. -- Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel and Collapse A worldview eloquently expressed. -- Chicago Tribune [Graffin] explains how evolution can be a guide to life. -- Scientific American Humble, challenging, and inspiring.... For Graffin, the appeal of both worlds was that, at their best, they challenged authority, dogma and given truths and opened up space for the anarchic process of creativity. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Graffin is one of those rare people who seem to have combined two lives into one. He's one of a small but growing number of atheists in the United States willing to talk about the damage they believe religion can do. -- Paste Bucking authority and the religious views of his family, Graffin explains how he has developed a personal philosophy that celebrates the power of nature. -- Nature Anarchy Evolution sets out to draw connections between evolution, naturalist thought and punk, an undertaking that might sound rife with the potential to be reachy-or preachy. But Graffin and Olson manage to weave the seemingly disparate concepts together into a satisfying narrative. -- LA Weekly Whether you're a believer, an atheist, an agnostic, or anything in between, this is a necessary book. -- PopMatters

    Het levensverhaal van Greg Graffin. Soms vol humor, dan weer zeer serieus. Het boek geeft een goed beeld van de punk-scene in Amerika. En na dit boek weet je alles over de evolutietheorie van Darwin.
