Thank God For Evolution!, the book

January 25, 2008

Michael Dowd, author the the new book, “Thank God For Evolution!: How The Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World”, was featured at North America’s first Evolutionary Revival on 15 February 2008 at First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego. The event also featured the high energy sounds of the Cosmic House Band, featuring Drew Massicott, Pete Thompson and Stu Anderson leading everyone in singing original songs by Keith Mesecher, and original works by Michael’s wife, science writer, Connie Barlow.  See,102/ at the Thank God For Evolution Website (main site is For Connie’s picture essay of the event see

If this book (endorsed by 5 Nobel laureates and 120 other luminaries)

doesn’t end the science vs. religion war, it’s certainly an important step

in the right direction. More, chapters 9-12 provide an inspiring and freeing

overview of “the human condition” and some of the most empowering

“self-help” and “healthy relationship” tools that you will find anywhere.


“Thank God for Evolution!: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will

Transform Your Life and Our World” can be downloaded for free (pdf) or

purchased inexpensively (hardcover) from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
