For over a century, the scientific establishment has ignored challenges to the theory of evolution. But in the last decade such complacency about its scientific and philosophical foundations has been shaken. As cracks in the Darwinian edifice have begun to appear, many are asking whether a defensible alternative exists. In response to this growing crisis, a movement has emerged among scholars exploring the possibility of intelligent design as an explanatory theory in scientific descriptions of the universe. As Michael Behe has proposed in his landmark Darwin's Black Box, at the cellular level there appears to be a high level of irreducible complexity that suggests design. In this book Behe is joined by eighteen other expert academics trained in mathematics, mechanical engineering, philosophy, physical anthropology, physics, astrophysics, biology, ecology and evolutionary biology to investigate the prospects for this emerging school of thought. Challenging the reigning ideology of materialistic naturalism on both scientific and philosophical grounds, these scholars press the case for a radical rethinknig of established evolutionary assumptions.

Book Description Intervarsity Press September 1998, 1998. Paper Back. Condition: New. This manifesto of the Intelligent Design movement brings together contributions by Michael Behe, David Berlinski, Phillip Johnson, Hugh Ross, William Lane Craig, J.P. Moreland, Nancy Pearcey, John Mark Reynolds, other scientists from many sub-disciplines and theologians and philosophers who articulate the threefold aim defined by Dembski above. Carefully distinguishing intelligent design from ''creation science'' (indicating a literal reading of the first chapters of Genesis tied to a young earth), this array of very bright folk offers a formidable collection of essays grouped in five parts: unseating naturalism, design theory, biological design, philosophy and design, and design in the universe. Bring your slide-rule and compass for some of these essays, but be prepared throughout for a mind-stretching and awe-inspiring read. Seller Inventory # 20101020180045
