Can a scientist believe in God?
As a paleontologist and a religious believer, Robert Asher constantly confronts the perceived conflict between his occupation and his faith.
In his new book, published by Cambridge University Press, Robert Asher asserts that in the course of his scientific work he has found that no other theory comes close to Darwin's as an explanation for our world's incredible biodiversity.
The remarkable evidence in favor of Darwinian evolution, Asher says, describes the cause of biodiversity, rather than the agency behind it. He draws a line between superstition and religion, and explores how atheism is not the inevitable conclusion of evolutionary theory.
His book contains chapters such as: 'Creationism: the fossils still say no!', 'Whales are no fluke' and 'DNA and the Tree of Life'.
Robert J. Asher is a vertebrate paleontologist, specializing in mammals, and since 2006 has been the Curator of Vertebrates in the Museum of Zoology, Cambridge. Over the past two decades, his work in paleobiology has taken him to Argentina, Britain, Canada, Kenya, Madagascar, Mongolia, South Africa, Spain, western USA and Venezuela.
