This chapter begins the examination of Phase II of the Wedge Strategy, “Publicity and Opinion-Making,” which is continued in Chapter 7. It explains how the intelligent design movement is executing every aspect of its strategy except the production of scientific research to support intelligent design. Beginning with information about its fundraising, the chapter examines the movement’s aggressive schedule of book publication and publicity, conferences, apologetics seminars, the development of teacher training programs and intelligent design educational materials, and use of the Internet as a tool for reaching the American public. The chapter also provides detailed information about Access Research Network, a clearinghouse for intelligent design books and videos. The establishment of intelligent design student groups and the movement’s inroads into the popular media are covered in detail.
