The Intelligent Design movement is three things br a scientific research program for investigating intelligent causes br an intellectual movement that challenges naturalistic evolutionary theories br a way of understanding divine action br Although the fast growing movement has gained considerable grassroots support many scientists and theologians remain skeptical about its merits Scientists worry that it s bad science merely creationism in disguise and theologians worry that it s bad theology misunderstanding divine action In this book William Dembski addresses these concerns and brilliantly argues that intelligent design provides a crucial link between science and theology Various chapters creatively and powerfully address intelligent discernment of divine action in nature why the significane of miracles should be reconsidered and the demise and unanswered questions of British natural theology Effectively challenging the hegemony of naturalism and reinstating design within science Dembski shows how intelligent design can be unpacked as a theory of information em Intelligent Design em is a pivotal synthesizing work from a thinker whom Phillip Johnson calls one of the most important of the design theorists who are sparking a scientific revolution by legitimating the concept of intelligent design in science, There have always been challenges to belief in God as he is revealed in the Bible and each new year seems to add more questions to the doubter s arsenal In Evidence for God leading apologists provide compelling arguments that address the most pressing questions of the day about God science Jesus the Bible and more including br br Is Intelligent Design really a credible explanation of the origins of our world br Did Jesus really exist br Is Jesus really the only way to God br What about those who have never heard the gospel br Is the Bible today what was originally written br What about recently publicized gospels that aren t in the Bible br and much more, William Dembski Michael Ruse and other prominent philosophers provide here a comprehensive balanced overview of the debate concerning biological origins a controversial dialectic since Darwin published The Origin of Species in Invariably the source of controversy has been design Is the appearance of design in organisms as exhibited in their functional complexity the result of purely natural forces acting without prevision or teleology Or does the appearance of design signify genuine prevision and teleology and if so is that design empirically detectable and thus open to scientific inquiry Four main positions have emerged in response to these questions Darwinism self organization theistic evolution intelligent design The contributors to this volume define their respective positions in an accessible style inviting readers to draw their own conclusions Two introductory essays furnish a historical overview of the debate William A Dembski is an associate research professor in the conceptual foundations of science at Baylor University as well as a senior fellow with Seattle s Discovery Institute His most important books are The Design Inference Cambridge and No Free Lunch Rowman and Littleton Michael Ruse is Lucyle T Wekmeister Professor of Philosophy at Florida State University He is the author of many books including Can a Darwinian Be a Christian The Relationship Between Science and Religion Cambridge, Fourteen brief and accessible essays by key players in the intelligent design movement
