RE: Iceages14aces
I highly recommend Carl Zimmer's Evolution: The Triumph of an Idea. It's an excellent introduction to the subject.

You can lead a theist to reason, but, you cannot make him think.

Then my apologies to you.

I urge you to read a book or two from actual evolutionary biologists like Richard Dawkins and Jerry Coyne.

The fellow in the videos has a shallow understanding of evolution and makes some straw man arguments.

I actually picked up three books today

The greatest show on earth by Dawkins

Sudden origins by Jeffery Schwartz

codes of evolution by Rush W. Dozier

They all look intresting and seem like they were meant for the layman so I look forward to reading them. I just started Dawkins one today

I strongly suggest Why Evolution Is True by Jerry Coyne as a good book for the layman.

Neil Shubin's Your Inner Fish is another good one.

Sorry had to do a little cleanup.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
