Most people know Greg Graffin as the lead singer of the punk band Bad Religion, but few know that he also received a Ph.D. from Cornell University and teaches evolution at the University of California at Los Angeles. In "Anarchy Evolution", 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, he describes his own coming of age as an artist and the formation of his naturalist worldview on questions involving God, science, and human existence. While the battle between religion and science is often displayed in the starkest of terms, "Anarchy Evolution" provides fresh and nuanced insights into the long-standing debate about atheism and the human condition.
It is a book for anyone who has ever wondered if God really exists.
