Doubting Darwin? : creationist designs on evolution
Part of the Blackwell Public Philosophy Series series
The debate about what to teach as science in our schools has reached boiling point, both inside and outside the classroom.
From Young Earth to Intelligent Design creationism, the intrusion of political and religious ideals is damaging the integrity of our public education system. "Doubting Darwin?" puts the dispute into its scientific and historical context, illuminating the intellectual debate that is shaping educational policy.In his thought-provoking book, noted biologist and philosopher Sahotra Sarkar exposes the frauds and fallacies of Intelligent Design Theory and its claim to be "good science." An expert exploration of key arguments, "Doubting Darwin?" adamantly rejects Intelligent Design's claim to legitimacy, showing clearly how and why it is an unsuitable alternative to evolutionary biology in the classroom.
This book examines the concrete arguments and positions of the Intelligent Design Movement, analyzes the use of computer science and information theory by the creationists, and discusses the relation between Darwin and modern evolutionary theory. "Doubting Darwin?" is an accessible and engaging read for anyone looking to gain a genuinely informed perspective on this heated debate.
