In fact, there is no "controversy" -- evolutionary biology is a scientific study while so-called "intelligent design" (ID) is a religious machination.

Gravity -- a theory in crisis! For the crushing defeat of the creationist wedge strategy, watch ... “Judgment Day : Intelligent Design on Trial” ... 2008 ... (EPL catalogued as: DVD 344.748077 DOV JUD) ... about Tammy Kitzmiller, et al. v. Dover Area School District, et al. (400 F. Supp. 2d 707, Docket no. 4cv2688) ..... According to Wikipedia, Dembski is a theologian and philosopher -- not a scientist -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_A._Dembski

Worst book I have ever read. Cherry-picks information. Sets up straw men. Extreme right-wing evangelical thinking. Extremely biased.
