Leah Gibbs

On my reading list: Arguments For Evolution

Here’s a few books that are getting added to my reading list.   Hopefully they will be available at the library, but I think a few of them I’m going to plunk down some cash for. I’m always amazed how many people, who are otherwise very intelligent, are willing to completely ignore hard facts and …
