The clash between evolution and creationism is one of the most hotly contested topics in education today. This book, written by one of America's most distinguished science educators, provides essential background information on this difficult and important controversy. Giving a sweeping and balanced historical look at both schools of thought, John A. Moore shows that faith can exist alongside science, that both are essential to human happiness and fulfillment, but that we must support the teaching of science and the scientific method in our nation's schools.

From Genesis to Genetics" is one of several easy-to-read books about the debate over evolutionary biology and creationism. John Moore, a science textbook writer and emeritus professor of biology at the University of California, Riverside, tackles a difficult set of goals in this work. He seeks to write a general history of the debate between evolution and creationism. But he also seeks to write a defense of evolution and a refutation of creationism. Those two tasks at a fundamental level are mutually exclusive and Moore fails to do either of them justice.
From Genesis to Genetics book. This book kind of lets you down a little bit. The subtitle is "the case of evolution and creationism" so you would think that there would be a fair and equal treatment
From Genesis to Genetics book. The subtitle is "the case of evolution and creationism" so you would think that there would be a fair and equal treatment. The author is obviously leaning heavily towards evolution and it shows in his readiness to expand on many topics related to it.

Creationists, on the other hand, demand that educators exclude evolution from the curriculum-but if educators must teach it, they should also be required to teach a competing theory, called creation science, as a logical alternative. This bitter argument has disrupted science education in the nation’s public schools.

In his lifetime, Moore published more than 180 journal articles and books. In 1957, Moore published a seminal textbook, Principles of Zoology. From Genesis to Genetics: The Case of Evolution and Creationism. From 1960 to 1976, Moore developed and supervised the yellow version of the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS). With the wide implementation of BSCS, the yellow version sold two million copies and was adapted for use in 11 different countries. During his retirement, Moore pursued improving methods of teaching science, publishing the Science as a Way of Knowing series. Moore became a vocal opponent of creationism.
