Book review: Why Intelligent Design Fails

Intelligent Design is the would-be acceptable face of Creationism. While it avoids the absurdity of postulating that the Earth is only a few thousand years old, it does claim that the natural world exhibits unmistakeable evidence of design. In other words, it tries to smuggle a Creator in by the back door.

In Why Intelligent Design Fails, edited by Matt Young and Taneer Edis, a panel of authors effectively demolishes the ID claim to be science. The book is quite technical in places but will be useful to university and sixth-form teachers who have to confront views of this kind, which have been around for a long time in the USA but are now beginning to appear elsewhere, including in Britain.
