Origins

The Scientific Story of Creation

Jim Baggott

  • Draws together current thinking in cosmology, geology, evolution, and anthropology into a single, accessible account of how we got here
  • Presents the scientific account of our origins, as a growing body of knowledge and a work-in-progress, compared to the many ancient mythical stories
  • Highlights the many aspects concerning the early Universe, the origins of life, early evolution, and the nature and origin of human consciousness that remain uncertain
