I have noticed that people who discuss evolution, especially in debates regarding creation vs evolution, often don’t really understand the basic concepts. I’m not talking about knowing the details of biology. Rather, this is about understanding in general how it works. My training is in biblical studies, and such science as I know is almost all self-taught.
The following are some books I recommend to help you understand the subject. What is actually claimed? What are some of the basic concepts? How does evolutionary theory relate to the rest of science.
