Summary
"Today, biblical literalism is tempered by the Intelligent Design movement, which finds other ways to speak of God's presence in nature's patterns. The once-dominant "young earth" school is being eclipsed by creationist arguments that invoke mathematics and biochemistry, conscripting the language of science to challenge Darwinian orthodoxy. Evolutionary scientists meanwhile, though perpetually striving for innovation, hesitate to point out gaps in their theories for fear that such self-scrutiny will serve as fodder for anti-evolution propaganda." "Tracking the dizzying rhetorical heights and opportunistic political lows of this controversy, Where Darwin Meets the Bible takes us to the very epicenter of the conflict. Drawing on dozens of interviews and eyewitness accounts, and ranging across the country, from California to New York, from Illinois to Tennessee, Larry Witham travels to America's churches, schools, courts, newsrooms, universities, museums, and government agencies to present creationists and evolutionists in their own unfiltered voices."--Jacket
