About the Authors
  • Recently a new battle has emerged between science and religion. The battle has focused on intelligent design (ID) and the numerous legal, philosophical and educational concerns surrounding it. Resolution of these concerns centers on two questions: Is ID science? And is ID religion? Despite the fact that ID does not meet the standards of scientific rigor, ID proponents have been able to create a remarkably well-designed marketing plan aimed at imposing a theistic naturalism in schools and scientific discourse. Both the ID movement and some of its most vociferous opponents have a vested interest in suggesting that science, especially evolutionary biology, and religion are incompatible. This book presents a philosophical and legal counterpoint by demonstrating the compatibility between religion and evolutionary biology and the incompatibility between ID and mainstream science.

    • Integrates the legal, philosophical, religious and scientific questions raised by intelligent design in an integrated and accessible format
    • Looks at the strategies used by intelligent design advocates to market ID as a scientific approach
    • Explains the legal issues involved in a manner accessible to non-lawyers, but with information that will be of interest to lawyers and legal academics as well
