Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Church tradition has long held that humanity arose from two people living in a garden of paradise in the Mesopotamian basin roughly six thousand years ago. Scientists now have abundant evidence that the human population never numbered less than ten thousand, originated out of Africa hundreds of thousands of years ago, and descended from ancestors that we share in common with several other species (some now extinct, some still living). Is it possible to make these two starkly different worldviews agree, or do we have to choose one and discard the other? This book will summarize the fossil and genetic discoveries that support the scientific view, and then address the impact that this has upon many Christian theological tenets. In the process, it presents many examples of the church adjusting long-held traditions and teachings in the face of scientific advances, as well as examples of how we often hold two seemingly contradictory ideas together without feeling a need to discard one of them. Many theologians have written on this topic without adequately incorporating the scientific aspects. Many others have addressed the science without exploring the impact on theology. This book accomplishes both.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Standing on the Shoulders of Darwin and Mendel: Early Views of Inheritance explores early theories about the mechanisms of inheritance. Beginning with Charles Darwin's now rejected Gemmule hypothesis, the book documents the reception of Gregor Mendel's work on peas and follows the work of early 20th century scholars. The research of Francis Galton, a cousin of Darwin, and the friction it caused between these two are a part of longer story of the development of genetics and an understanding of how offspring inherit the characteristics of their parents. Bateson, Garrod, de Vries, Tschermak and others are all characters in a scientific story of discovery, acrimony, cooperation and revelation.

This book was released on 2019-10-28 with total page 664 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: ÒIÕm happy to have been a part of history, however small my role was.Ó The words of Wardiman Djojonegoro reveal Indonesian history the way only a man who worked alongside Ali Sadikin, B. J. Habibie and Soeharto can. The modest 85-year-old, a former education minister and current foundation chairman at the Habibie Center, recalls the younger days of a Òbig villageÓ Jakarta and says it was the countryÕs third president who taught him the keys to national development. This is what Peter Zack, a reporter for the Jakarta Globe, wrote on 18 April 2009. In the present English translation of his 2014 memoir, Standing on the Shoulders of Giants: Reminiscences of Working with Three Great Indonesians, 1966Ð1998, Wardiman invites us to take a walk down memory lane and in so doing he tells us something about his life and career, as well as sharing his thoughts on a lifetime of public service under three great Indonesians. He also tells us about his secrets of how to age gracefully and his thoughts on the future of Indonesian education. The bookÕs core theme can be summed up in his reply to a high school student who asked him about the key to his lifetime success: ÒWherever you are placed, do your best!Ó
Download or read book Standing on the Shoulders of Giants written by John B. Tasker and published by . This book was released on 2008 with total page 262 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Often neglected in histories of medicine is the contribution veterinarians and animal disease researchers have made to the study of human illness. Standing on the Shoulders of Giants contains fourteen chapters describing independent events in veterinary research that provided new understanding of human medical problems and their management. Animal disease investigations advanced a wide range of medical disciplines including bacteriology, virology, and immunology. Innovative treatments for orthopedic and infertility problems of human beings have had their origins in solutions developed initially for veterinary problems. The widely used blood thinner, coumadin, and the popular rodenticide, warfarin, were developed based on intensive study of a strange disease of cattle. Progress in the prevention and treatment of human parasitic diseases in developing countries has been made through anti-parasite drugs created primarily for the treatment of parasites of domestic animals in the more advanced countries. Third parties have acknowledged these special contributions. The nominees and recipients of the prestigious Lasker Awards and the Nobel Prizes in Physiology or Medicine have included persons whose research was based upon earlier work on spontaneous animal diseases or whose basic medical education has been in veterinary medicine. The essential role of veterinary medicine in the larger realm of health sciences has been recognized for more than 200 years by the participation of veterinarians and animal disease researchers in the national academies established to advise the government on matters of public health. Standing on the Shoulders of Giants is of interest to all concerned with animals, animal science, and veterinary medicine, and to those who care about contemporary human medicine and its origins. About the Author: John Tasker is dean and professor emeritus at Michigan State University. He has a long and distinguished career in veterinary medicine as a clinical pathologist, educator, and researcher. He earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Doctor of Philosophy degrees at Cornell University, where he later served on the faculty for many years. He was dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University for ten years before his retirement in 1995. Tasker lives in South Florida.
