Publisher's Description

For over a century, the scientific establishment has ignored challenges to the theory of evolution. But in the last decade such complacency about its scientific and philosophical foundations has been shaken. As cracks in the Darwinian edifice have begun to appear, many are asking whether a defensible alternative exists. In response to this growing crisis, a movement has emerged among scholars exploring the possibility of intelligent design as an explanatory theory in scientific descriptions of the universe. As Michael Behe has proposed in his landmark Darwin's Black Box, at the cellular level there appears to be a high level of irreducible complexity that suggests design. In this book Behe is joined by eighteen other expert academics trained in mathematics, mechanical engineering, philosophy, physical anthropology, physics, astrophysics, biology, ecology and evolutionary biology to investigate the prospects for this emerging school of thought. Challenging the reigning ideology of materialistic naturalism on both scientific and philosophical grounds, these scholars press the case for a radical rethinknig of established evolutionary assumptions.

    An excellent overview of intelligent design. Any Christian interested in how to intelligently debunk the evolution myth will find this a profitable source of information. This book will demonstrate that the "science" of evolution is mathematically indefensible.

    Difficult to debunk, huh? As for Behe's work, simply go to talkorigins.org to see responses to his work by professional scientists. As for the cosmological argument, consider that 90% of the universe is wasted so-called "dark matter," additionally littered with other junk, and stars evolve and die, etc. Also, you perhaps may have seen the two galaxies in deep space colliding last year via the Hubble telescope? At any rate, that does that. And as for evolutionary biology, see "Finding Darwin's God" by Kenneth Miller (available at this site) and/or "Science on Trial: The Case for Evolution" by Futuyma. Unlike the above, both works are done by highly respected and credentialed biologists, and thus, you'll hear the real (and rest of the) story--the former scientist actually himself a devout Christian.
