Intelligent Design: Creationism
Creationism is no longer the simple notion it once was taken to be. Its new advocates have become more sophisticated in how they present their views, speaking of “intelligent design” rather than “creation science” and aiming their arguments against the naturalistic philosophical method that underlies science, proposing to replace it with a “theistic science.”
The creationism controversy is not just about the status of Darwinian evolution – it is a clash of religious and philosophical worldviews, for a common underlying fear among Creationists is that evolution undermines both the basis of morality as they understand it and the possibility of purpose in life.
Robert T. Pennock, the scientist, philosopher and author of Tower of Babel: The Evidence Against the New Creationism speaks on the controversial movement to include intelligent design creationism in the curricula of public schools.
