Evolution - this has become a hot button word. To some, the Theory of Evolution is scientific fact, while others think it is nothing more than hogwash. Many of those who take umbrage with the Theory of Evolution are believers in Creationism. Creationist hold to the literal interpretation the Biblical account of creation. In Richard Seltzer's new CD, Evolution, you can learn about both theories, and related topics.

The Evolution CD contains the text of more than 90 books covering Evolution, Creationism, Social Darwinism, Eugenics, and more. This collection serves as an excellent introduction to the various theories concerned with how Mankind became 'human'. This collection is also a 'must have' reference work for libraries for scholars and students in the fields of evolutionary studies, history, and the social sciences.

In this outstanding anthology, you'll find works by: You'll also find a selection of well-known books such as: As well as lesser known, but just as influential works, as: All the books in this collection are in the public domain, and all are presented in the plain text format (ASCII) This format makes the books easy to read using a screen reader or computer screen magnification program. Also, with just a few clicks you can change the font style and size of the text. Included on this CD is a freeware copy of ReadPlease 2003, text-to-speech software program that will read the text of the books aloud to you. Also included is a trial version of the commercial version of this program, called ReadPlease Plus. The freeware version can only handle 16k of data at a time. In most cases, I found this to be more than sufficient. The commercial version will read files of any size. Instructions on how to install and use the freeware version, and the trial version, are included on the Evolution CD.

This CD (CDOM #1 Evolution) is the first volume in B&R Samizdat Express' new CD of the Month Series. The CDs in this series can be purchased individually, or readers can purchase a yearly subscription. Additionally, this CD is designed for use on a Windows PCs only, and you will need to have an Internet Browser or Word Processing program installed on your computer in order to open the files.
