Evolutionary science is all the rage and biology the new rock and roll - but how accurate is the information we are being fed? Jim Alexander casts a critical eye over the new popular consensus. Every week scientists announce that they have discovered the gene for something, but did you know that there is no such thing as a gene? And that man, as conventioinally defined as somehow separate from animals, doesn't exist... A dramatic refutation of the dominant paradigm in biological thinking, a short introduction to evolutionary theory and the misconceptions that come out of it.
