Scientists Confront Creationism
Intelligent Design and Beyond
From leading scientists, lawyers and educators, here is a new and decisive rebuttal to the assault on evolution from proponents of "intelligent design".
With the pseudoscience of creationism rising again under the guise of "intelligent design", this powerful collection eviscerates the new assault on evolution and reveals the pervasive and insidious threat posed to genuine science by intelligent design proponents. The sixteen powerful, original essays 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 public and scientific institutions. With creationist arguments forever morphing and reappearing under new aliases, this new confrontation is a ringing and lasting refutation of creationism's fraudulent claims.
