"I would never have predicted that an atheist would name a book about intelligent design as one of the top books of 2009, while another atheist would write a book defending intelligent design?" commented Dennis Wagner, ARN Executive Director, about the organization's Top Ten Darwin and Design Resource List for 2009. "This is a sign that open minds in the academic and scientific communities are beginning to take the evidence for intelligent design seriously," Wagner concluded. He was referring to the number one book on the list, Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design by Stephen Meyer and number three book Seeking God in Science: An Atheist Defends Intelligent Design by Bradley Monton.
Kevin Wirth, ARN Director of Media Relations, pointed out that several other resources on the 2009 list show a growing international interest in intelligent design: "Hungarian scientists published an English version of their book, Nature's IQ, that documents over 100 irreducibly complex behaviors in nature, while a well-published British medical doctor documented his reservations about Darwinian evolution in the book Why Us? How Science Rediscovered the Mystery of Ourselves."

Evolution has become a favorite topic of the news media recently, but for some reason, they never seem to get the story straight. The staff at Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture started this Blog to set the record straight and make sure you knew "the rest of the story".
A blogger from New England offers his intelligent reasoning.
We are a group of individuals, coming from diverse backgrounds and not speaking for any organization, who have found common ground around teleological concepts, including intelligent design. We think these concepts have real potential to generate insights about our reality that are being drowned out by political advocacy from both sides. We hope this blog will provide a small voice that helps rectify this situation.

Intelligent Design The Future is a multiple contributor weblog whose participants include the nation's leading design scientists and theorists: biochemist Michael Behe, mathematician William Dembski, astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, philosophers of science Stephen Meyer, and Jay Richards, philosopher of biology Paul Nelson, molecular biologist Jonathan Wells, and science writer Jonathan Witt. Posts will focus primarily on the intellectual issues at stake in the debate over intelligent design, rather than its implications for education or public policy.
