    A most excellent book about the history and rhetoric of ID

    Thomas Woodward wrote a most excellent book
    about the history of the ID movement and to a
    certain extent the Darwinian movement as well.

    and Darwinism but also the rhetoric of bot...moreThomas Woodward wrote a most excellent book
    about the history of the ID movement and to a
    certain extent the Darwinian movement as well.

    The book looks not only at the history of ID
    and Darwinism but also the rhetoric of both
    sides as well.

    Woodward is very fair to both sides even though he
    himself is a Christian design advocate.

    Lot's of info and scientific facts abound
    in this book and at times it can get a bit
    technical and boring as well as over intellectual.

    Woodward talks a lot about Philip E. Johnson
    and his book Darwin on Trial as well as Michael
    Denton's book Evolution: A Theory in Crises and
    Michael Behe and William Dembski as well not to
    mention many evolutionists such as Gould and Futuyma.

    Nonetheless, I give Woodward's book 5/5 stars
    for his excellent writing and research into both
    sides of the evolution, design and origin of life
    debate as well as being fair and honest.

    Note: This book was written in 2003 pre-Dover trial
