It all starts with an understanding of the theory of evolution.

A recent issue of the National Geographic magazine asked the question, "Was Darwin Wrong?" Inside it gave the answer: "No."

The evidence is in and it is overwhelming that life evolved out of the ooze and continues to evolve.

If you click on the pigeon image above and scroll down the National Geographic page that appears, you'll see a list of links to sites that explain the theory of evolution.


This interactive and entertaining website is a companion to the PBS series on evolution. Explore Darwin's life and the theory he proposed, find resources for teachers and students and a library of additional resources.

The Writing of Charles Darwin on the Web

This site claims to be the most extensive collection of Darwin's writings ever published and includes The Origin of Species and other books, volumes of letters, and articles published in periodicals. Although the site appears to come from the British Library, it is produced by a historian affiliated with Cambridge University.

Exploring Constitutional Conflicts: The Evolution Controversy

A fascinating look at both sides of the issue from a University of Missouri law professor. Includes links to websites supporting evolutionist theory and creationism.

More about Darwin himself than about evolution, this entertaining site offers great detail about Darwin's life and science in the late 1800s. It includes a long list of links.

Center for Science and Culture

This website presents the non-Darwinist and non-creationist point of view known as intelligent design, which holds that the universe is the product of intelligent thinking.

Answers in Genesis

A very large young-Earth creationist website. Although most material is in English, it includes pages in ten Asian and European languages.

The Talk.Origins Archive

www.talkorigins.orgThis website is built around essays and articles addressing the evolution/creationism controversy from a mainstream science viewpoint. Lots of links to websites on both sides of the issue.

National Center for Science Education

The NCSE is a nonprofit organization dedicated to defending the teaching of evolution in public schools.

Robert Clark

This organization provides a committee of experts in all areas of scientific and technological endeavor and gives independent, objective advice on critical international and national issues.
