FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Striving to end the ongoing battle of science versus religion by challenging mistaken beliefs


Laramie, WY, February 20, 2011 - In Religion Versus Science: Where Both Sides go Wrong in The Great Evolution Debate (O-Books), Ron Frost takes on the argument of evolution versus religion which is often the basis of many cultural wars that separate secular, technical people and their interest in science on the one side, from Christians and other religions on the other. His book does an excellent job of bringing a new viewpoint to both sides of this ongoing and contentious argument.

When it comes to evolution, Frost believes that the dispute is fueled more by misconceptions on both sides than by the actual facts. With this goal in mind, he gives readers the benefit of the extensive amount of research done for his book in order to clear up some of these misguided beliefs.

The indisputable facts of evolution are that the earth is immensely old; that all life can be traced to one ancient progenitor, and it is natural selection that causes species to change. One aspect of evolution that has long irritated Evangelical Christians is that materialistic scientists use these facts to present a scientific view of evolution that, if not actively atheistic, leaves no room for a spiritual dimension to life. They would have us believe that evolution is some sort of hit and miss pointless process where the only value to human life is to act as a transporter of all-important genes.

Frost points out that in a response to this atheistic view of life, Creationists make the mistake of attacking the actual facts of evolution rather than the manner in which the facts are presented. Therefore, his goal in Religion Versus Science is to present a view that is compatible with the two different yet complementary ways of viewing the world – science as it deals with the objective, material aspects of reality, and religion as it deals with the subjective way we relate to the outer world.

Ron Frost has been an editor for two major scientific journals and a professor of Geology at the University of Wyoming for many years. Combining this with his twenty-five years as a practicing Buddhist provides the perfect blend for finding a common ground between science and religion.

TIP SHEET:


Karl Giberson, Ph.D., author of Saving Darwin:
How to be a Christian and Believe in Evolution, and Oracles of Science: Celebrity Scientists Versus God and Religion with Mariano Artigas: “Frost’s remarkably wide-ranging volume offers the reader a helpful survey of the troubled road that led to the current controversy over scientific theories of origins. More than just another book on creation versus evolution, Science vs. Spirituality locates the controversy in the inability of science to deal effectively with the realm of consciousness and mind, where our deepest needs and most profound experiences reside. Writing from an eastern, Buddhist perspective, Frost offers a fresh perspective on one of the deepest questions of our time.”
