God, the Devil, and Darwin: A Critique of Intelligent Design Theory

Niall Shanks


This book introduces the intelligent design theory, which preserves the core of creation science while doing away with much of the biblical literalism and explicit references to God. It discusses the theory, where it came from, and how it is presented to the public. It argues that the theory represents a serious threat to the educational, scientific, and philosophical values of the Enlightenment that have shaped modern science and modern democratic institutions.

Keywords: intelligent design theory, creation science, education
