Bad Religion’s lead singer Greg Graffin is a brainy guy. Over the course of the L.A. punk-pop band’s three-decade history, he’s found time to collect a Ph.D in zoology from Cornell University and a masters in geology from UCLA, where he teaches a course in evolution today.
So it should be no surprise that Graffin will publish his first book, the weightily titled “Anarchy Evolution: Faith, Science and Bad Religion in a World Without God,” via It Books on Sept. 28. The tome is co-authored by former National Book Award non-fiction finalist Steve Olson (“Mapping Human History”). Graffin’s work considers his personal artistic development and weighs questions about the existence of God, viewed through his studies of evolution.
