Darwin, God and the Meaning of Life: How Evolutionary Theory Undermines Everything You Thought You Knew - Steve Stewart-Williams

"This book deserves a place in every atheist's library."
—Dierk von Behrens, The Australian Humanist

If you accept evolutionary theory, can you also believe in God? Are human beings superior to other animals, or is this just a human prejudice? Does Darwin have implications for heated issues like euthanasia and animal rights? Does evolution tell us the purpose of life, or does it imply that life has no ultimate purpose? Does evolution tell us what is morally right and wrong, or does it imply that ultimately nothing is right or wrong?

In this fascinating and intriguing book, Steve Stewart-Williams addresses these and other fundamental philosophical questions raised by evolutionary theory and the exciting new field of evolutionary psychology. Drawing on biology, psychology and philosophy, he argues that Darwinian science supports a view of a godless universe devoid of ultimate purpose or moral structure, but that we can still live a good life and a happy life within the confines of this view.

thx. I have a question: One of the ebooks here has a particular typo throughout it. The ampersand-quote is just a set of three control characters. Is there a way to edit this correctly? Its the daniel Dennett book on consciousness explained MOBI.
