9780801065637: Darwin Strikes Back: Defending the Science of Intelligent Design

The debate between proponents of Darwinism and those of Intelligent Design has reached the status of a full-scale public battle. With stories of qualifying statements about evolution in public school textbooks and the recent 70th anniversary of the Scopes Monkey trial in the news, the question about our origins will not be put to rest.
Following up his award-winning Doubts about Darwin, Thomas Woodward traces the continuing saga of the ID movement in Darwin Strikes Back. Focusing on the emerging key players on both sides--Michael Behe, William Dembski, Kenneth Miller, Robert Pennock, and more--Woodward helps readers navigate the tangled maze of public debate, including anti-ID activism from Christians, and shows them what might be coming next.

From the Back Cover:

What started as a debate among scientists has become a full-scale public battle.

In this sequel to his award-winning Doubts about Darwin, Thomas Woodward traces the struggle that has emerged as the two sides wrestle with questions of the origin of life. Woodward answers these questions and more:

· Who are the key players on each side, and what contributions have they made?
· How has the debate developed, and where is it headed in the future?
· What conclusions can we draw about our origins based on the scientific evidence?

There is no better guide to help you navigate this important debate.
"Darwin Strikes Back tells the thrilling story of how the Darwinian establishment has summoned all its power to crush the frightening challenge of the Intelligent Design Movement, and how the rebels are not only surviving but gaining new strength as we respond to the onslaught. Highly recommended."--Phillip E. Johnson, emeritus professor of law, University of California, Berkeley; author, Darwin on Trial

"Taking the reader behind the headlines, Thomas Woodward--the premier historian of the Intelligent Design Movement--analyzes crucial developments of the past decade."--Michael J. Behe, department of biology, Lehigh University

"The controversy over Darwinism and Intelligent Design signals a major scientific and social revolution. Everyone who wants to understand it should read this timely and well-written book."--Jonathan Wells, author, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design

"My friend Tom Woodward is one of the most effective and articulate chroniclers of Intelligent Design in America today. This excellent work will clear away some of the fog of confusion spread by Darwinists, and give you solid, useable information to defend Intelligent Design. A very valuable resource in one of the most consequential debates of our times."--Chuck Colson, founder and chairman, Prison Fellowship
