Abstract

 

It is easy to see the debate about Intelligent Design (ID) as being one between two extremes: ‘the Goodies vs the Baddies’. But is it really as simple as that? We think the debate raises the following questions, and we have provided some of our comment in the footnotes to help understand the issues.

Key words

Intelligent Design, evolution, creation, separate magisteria, naturalism, secularism, God of the Gaps, anthropic principle, irreducible complexity, teaching science in schools.
