Doubts about Darwin: a history of intelligent design
For the last fifteen years or so, the Intelligent Design Movement has been gaining momentum and is making both social and scientific inroads into the established "religion" of our culture-scientific naturalism. At the core of the Intelligent Design Movement is a group of professionals and academics from various disciplines who are skeptical of Darwinian macroevolution and question the naturalistic origin of life. The "Darwinian paradigm crisis" that is emerging is of critical importance because it raises questions about the origins of life and probes the deepest levels of what it means to be human.Doubts about Darwin presents a historical study of the rapid emergence of this movement by tracing the key events, personalities, and sociocultural factors that shape it, and by examining the rhetorical dimension in both sides in the debate. Author Thomas Woodward poses the crucial question: How do scientists (and the public at large) come to be persuaded that they are in possession of solid scientific knowledge and what effect do their "stories" have on their beliefs?
