Product Description

Intelligent design is surrounded by a storm of debate. Proponents and opponents have both sought to have their voices heard above the din.

Is it unscientific? Is it a danger to real Christian faith? Is it trying to smuggle God into the classroom?

Controversy can create confusion rather than clarity. So here to clear things up is Bill Dembski, one of the founders of intelligent design, who joins with Jonathan Witt to answer these questions and more. In Intelligent Design: Uncensored They plainly lay out just what intelligent design is and is not. They answer objections with straight talk that is down to earth.

You'll be surprised at how often smart people have misrepresented ID. You might be surprised to see exactly how they respond to what turns out to be misleading arguments.

Endorsements

"Who says accurate, cutting-edge science has to be a bore? Dembski and Witt make the biological nuts and bolts come alive and dance. They show that intelligent design is not only true, it's fun!"
—Michael Behe,
professor of biochemistry, Lehigh University, and author of Darwin's Black Box


"Darwinians fired away throughout 2009, the 150th anniversary of On the Origin of Species, but could not kill the concept of intelligent design. This book is the first salvo of the next 150 years. Dembski and Witt succinctly explain what the war is about in a way understandable to a general audience. If people you know have bought the propaganda that ID is just a gussied-up version of six-day creationism, give them this book."
—Dr. Marvin Olasky,
editor-in-chief, World, and Provost, The King's College, New York City


"The book we've all been waiting for--a down-to-earth and clear explanation of the stunning scientific discoveries which underpin intelligent design theory and its implications, as well as a comprehensive rebuttal of the common objections. This book will excite the layman and provide a valuable starting point for the serious student of the science of origins."
—Alastair Noble, Ph.D.,
chemistry, former BBC Education Officer and Her Majesty's Inspector of Schools for Science, Scotland


"Don't let its conversational, nontechnical prose fool you; Intelligent Design Uncensored is a first-rate introduction to the intelligent design debate from two writers who know the subject better than just about anyone else. A useful resource for students of all ages!"
—Guillermo Gonzalez,
astrobiologist and coauthor of The Privileged Planet


"Dembski and Witt are the perfect combination. They deliver an explanation of intelligent design that is at once precise, lucid and, well, witty. Intelligent Design Uncensored shows that ID is not only intellectually serious, but intuitively compelling. ID is widely misunderstood and maligned by its critics, and sometimes hard to grasp, even by its friends. If you're wondering what all the fuss is about, read this book."
—Jay Richards,
coauthor of The Privileged Planet and author of Money, Greed and God: Why Capitalism Is the Solution and Not the Problem


"A tour de force in which two prodigious intellects apply their remarkable communication skills to the relentless pursuit of truth . . . and a sterling example of open-minded scientific inquiry that allows facts to lead wherever they may. Congratulations to Dembski and Witt for ably dismantling the stereotypical caricature of intelligent design."
—Hank Hanegraaff,
author of Fatal Flaws: What Evolutionists Don't Want You to Know


"Intelligent Design Uncensored is a five-star fantastic voyage! Nonscientists will be swept up by the lively, readable story of discovery while aspiring young scientists will learn why their experimental work in the lab will do just fine without Neo-Darwinism telling them where to go."
—Dr. Philip S. Skell,
National Academy of Sciences, and Evan Pugh Professor Emeritus, Pennsylvania State University

    Intelligent Design UncensoredDubbed as an easy to understand guide to the controversy, it lives up to its name.Perhaps the only difficulty will be with the numbers. Giving us mathematical probability concerning various things happening takes us into the realm of numbers that few of us can probably understand. In the end, however, what is shown is that evolution is mathematically improbable to the point of being impossible.Dembski and Witt do a very good job of making the issue of ID understood. At the same time they present to us a view of the controversy that surrounds it. ID is not accepted by many in the scientific community. They reject it on philosophical grounds instead of scientific grounds. Many scientists have embraced ID because that's where their research has led them. Those scientists who believe in ID are censored by the Darwinists, however. On the other side of the coin, sometimes Christians oppose ID because it does not necessarily embrace Christian Theism. Dembski and Witt argue that ID is not necessarily anti-Christian. Christians who are creationists can certainly profit from examining the case for ID. The authors state their case, present their arguments, then give us a guide to do battle with Darwinism. The directions in the guide are good directions. Sometimes those who wish to have all of the evidence regarding origins presented go too far and fail. ID Uncensored shows how we can fight the battle at the schoolboard meeting or in the statehouse. This book is recommended reading for those who are interested in the debate about origins.
