The Complete Idiot's Guide to Understanding Intelligent DesignChristopher Carlisle W. Thomas Smith, Jr.
trade paperback, 324 pages, 2007
If you have been baffled by the Darwin vs. Design debate, or looking for the perfect book to introduce your co-worker to the topic, then your answer has arrived. With Complete Idiot Guides available on hundreds of topics, the publishers of this catchy series have decided that the smart people are the one’s who admit up front they know nothing about a topic they interested in learning more about, and are secure enough about who they are to have an “Idiot’s Guide” sitting on their coffee table at home as they quickly get up to speed on the key issues and facts.
This book takes a balanced look at the issues with an easy to read layout that includes call-out boxes, definitions, and summary statements throughout each chapter. Christopher Carlisle is the Episcopal Chaplin at the University of Massachusetts and cofounder of The God and Science Project. He has hosted events on his campus featuring proponents of both sides of the debate. In this book you will learn:
The layman’s ID Trilogy is now complete when this book is read along with Jonathan Well’s Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design, and Denyse O’Leary’s By Design or by Chance. The cat is out now out of the bag for the average citizen, and the mandarins of science and the sound-byte news reporters can no longer dismiss ID as “creationism in disguise” or a failed attempt to “sneak religion into the public schools”. After reading this book, even the village “idiot” will know better.
