About This Guide

The continuing ideological struggle between evolutionists and creationists has entered a new phase with the emergence of "intelligent design." Intelligent design (ID) is a concept that states that living organisms must be the product of careful and conscious design that cannot be explained by the random workings of evolution alone. This Research Guide focuses on resources which cover the scientific nature of evolution versus creationism, as well as disputes over teaching intelligent design in public schools and its presentation in textbooks.
