This book... Is utterly brilliant. Regardless of your religious beliefs I would highly suggest this book to anyone who actually wants to make INFORMED decisions on such matters.

The familiar "evolution is a religion" and "Darwinism equals immorality" strawman rhetor ...more

It serves its purpose well as a general introduction, not sparing the heavier implications and deductions of ID out of the book. I recommend it for just about anyone beginning their foray into this most stimulating of subjects and fields of research.

Great primer on the subject of intelligent design. William Dembski coined the term "Intelligent Design" some years ago but it is just now really getting some momemtum. If it can be "proven" that organic life has intelligent design then there must be a designer.
