Rescuing science from its philosophical captivity…
As Thomas Woodward notes in Doubts about Darwin: A History of Intelligent Design,
“The hostility (Design) has received is understandable. Design theory has challenged the hegemony of science’s ruling philosophy, naturalism — the view that all reality is material and natural, and that there is no ‘non-physical stuff’ to consider as possibly real or worthy of investigation. It is simply ‘a fact’ and a starting point that there are no souls, no angels, no Platonic forms or ideals, no real personal-infinite god anywhere. ‘To posit otherwise is to leave science!’ says the naturalist referee, as he throws down his philosophical penalty flag.”
In truth, a more sober assessment reveals that it is Darwinism that is philosophically bankrupt and empirically “out of bounds.”
For an eye-opening, comprehensive, and engaging look at how Intelligent Design has “called out” the empirical emptiness of Darwinism and proposed a more rational paradigm, get your copy of Doubts about Darwin: A History of Intelligent Design today!
Doubts about Darwin: A History of Intelligent Design by Thomas Woodward.
Deep in the halls of scientific academia, a debate has been quietly raging between Darwinian macroevolution and the theory of Intelligent Design. Doubts About Darwin follows the key players in this debate, confronts the challenge of scientific naturalism and provides a stirring overview of this growing movement. Armed with lucid, scientifically grounded arguments, proponents of Intelligent Design have put evolutionists on the defensive.
Who are the adherents of this emerging movement? Author Thomas Woodward traces events, personalities, and sociocultural factors that contributed to its growth; and examines the rhetorical dimensions that continue to fuel it. Doubts About Darwin shows that the erosion of certainty about the factual truth of Darwinism is the product of a rhetorical onslaught… the persuasive case making by highly accredited critics like Phillip Johnson, Michael Behe, and William Dembski. Accessible and compelling, Doubts About Darwin opens a dramatic door to moral and intellectual reformation.

Yes, Hank! The enormous and unwarranted influence of Darwin’s theory of macroevolution has clearly passed its expiration date. To expand my apologetics toolkit to more effectively deal with the vitally important issue of origins, please send me the book I have selected below:
