Summary
With the pseudoscience of creationism rising again under the guise of "intelligent design," this powerful collection reveals the pervasive and insidious threat posed to genuine science by ID proponents. The sixteen original essays by leading scientists, lawyers, and educators address two key issues: the overwhelming scientific evidence for evolution gathered over 150 years and the dubious underpinnings of creationism; and how society can mount better educational and legal policies to prevent a theological takeover of our public and scientific institutions. The book includes powerful voices in the modern culture war against ID. With creationist arguments forever morphing and reappearing under new aliases, this new confrontation is a must-read for teachers, students, and general readers, and a lasting refutation of creationism's fraudulent claims.--From publisher description
