Seeking God in Science: An Atheist Defends Intelligent Design

Against the critics of Intelligent Design theory, a new book by a philosopher of science argues that design theories are, in fact, science and that the arguments are stronger than most realize.

Darwin was Wrong – Conference and Webcast

And for beginning students of either discipline, the difference between success and frustration begins with understanding […]

Eminent Atheist Changes his Mind: The Antony Flew Story
