In the late 1990s I was teaching an Earth Science course in Raleigh’s Adult High School program, and I made notes to supplement the text and passed them out to the class. When the course was over, the notes I had made on evolution interested me because the topic is very contentious, and I decided to do some additional research and expand them. I was a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and so had an automatic subscription to their prestigious journal Science. I also got a subscription to the prestigious international journal Nature, which has been based in England for over 150 years. Between these two journals, I had access to the latest research to guide me. The result was my brief class notes expanded to Chapters 2 through 5 of God and Science. The religious-based objections to evolution drove me to explore religion, which resulted in Chapters 7 through 12 of God and Science.
