Understanding Intelligent Design

Commonsense and no-nonsense, with pointed examples, the authors explainthe central theories of ID, showing why the presence of "information" and meaningful "complexity" require the involvement of intelligencewhy ID adheres to the scientific method and is a valid field of scientific inquirywhy scientific evidence increasingly conflicts with evolutionary theorieshow "both" evolutionary theory and ID have religious/philosophical underpinnings, and why this causes so much controversyhow "both" systems of thought have radical implications for our culture--and what readers can do about it
Clarifying crucial issues, this key resource gives nonspecialists a solid grasp of one of today's foundational religious-scientific-cultural concepts.
