An endorsement on ENV of the book, which is a collection of philosophical, historical, mathematical, and scientific essays on design in nature. Many of the chapters are written by scientists from outside the United States, with Spain being especially well represented, who are friendly to intelligent design. However, not all of the chapters defend ID. Some of the authors critique ID, or claim it's impossible to scientifically detect design in nature. But even the criticisms are thoughtful, making this volume a worthy addition to anyone's collection of ID-related books.
In the 19th century, Christians responded to the challenges of Darwinian evolution in many and diverse ways?from hostility to reconciliation. Read about the reactions of theologians, scientists, pastors, authors, bishops, and politicians?and learn how Darwinism eventually became a symbol of warfare between science and Christianity in this issue of Christian History magazine.

I bought a copy of "The Explanation of Everything" by Lauren Grodstein. The book was an interesting read on relationships to be sure, but the ID/atheist debate was as deep as a mountain stream near its source. In the book, one female Christian has sensual urges which she acts out on the professor. Her pastor has a curious theology, at least from a Protestant worldview, which he apparently holds. The quirky male believer does an about fact to atheism. Meantime the atheist professor oddly feels the ghost of his departed wife while still an atheist, and becomes a theist, or should I say, a deist.
I was hoping for more on the debate side...

Just in time for the 50th anniversary of C.S. Lewis's death, a new documentary has been released exploring the beloved Christian writer's life-long struggle to find intelligent design in a world filled with cruelty, pain, and imperfection.
The documentary "C.S. Lewis and Intelligent Design" premieres on the NRB cable and satellite network and the YouTube C.S. Lewis Channel. The documentary was inspired by a book edited by Dr. John West titled The Magician's Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society.
With the 50th anniversary of C.S. Lewis's passing on November 22, CSC associate director John West has written a book; The Magician's Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society.
C.S. Lewis countered the argument from undesign with several positive arguments in favor of the existence of a transcendent intelligent cause for nature.
Here is a review of Darwin's Doubt by Frank Turek, who is a speaker and award-winning author/coauthor of three books; I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist. Legislating Morality, and Correct, Not Politically Correct.
In this episode of ID the Future, David Boze and CSC Senior Fellow Dr. Jonathan Wells discuss the connections to intelligent design in the new movie Man of Steel. While the story of Superman may be fantasy, it centers on real scientific matters such as genetic manipulation and information storage inside the cell.
Casey Luskin reports in ENV...with Stephen Meyer's new book, Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design, out this week and catching some noteworthy attention, recent articles in leading scientific journals are confirming some of his key arguments about the Cambrian explosion. The two arguments I have in mind are: (1) that the Cambrian explosion was a real event in the history of life, and (2) that standard unguided evolutionary theories have failed to explain it.
Is science really the realm of free inquiry, open to every good idea? Biologist Rupert Sheldrake says modern science is mired in various dogmas - boundaries you're not supposed to cross, at least if you value your job and your reputation.
The DVD is available, Blu-ray soon.

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.
