Summary Most people know Greg Graffin as the lead singer of the punk band Bad Religion, but few know that he also has a Ph.D. and teaches evolution at UCLA. Here, Graffin argues that art and science have a deep connection. As an adolescent growing up when "drugs, sex, and trouble could be had on any given night," Graffin discovered that the study of evolution provided a framework through which he could make sense of the world. In this provocative and personal book, Graffin describes his own coming of age as an artist, as well as the formation of his naturalist worldview on questions involving God, science, and human meaning. While the fight between religion and science is often displayed in the starkest of terms, Graffin provides fresh and nuanced insights into the long-standing debates about atheism and the human condition.--From publisher description.
