The new book by Greg Graffin, Anarchy Evolution: Faith, Science and Bad Religion In A World Without God is an incredible view into the world and life of the famed musician and professor. In Anarchy Evolution, Graffin argues that art and science have a deep connection. Given his achievements as a singer and an academic, it’s a natural argument for him to make. 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, Anarchy Evolution provides fresh and nuanced insights into the long-standing debates about atheism and the human condition. It is a book that takes the more personal approach to evolution, theology and the human experience for anyone who has ever wondered if God really exists.
