Design and Its Critics: Yet Another ID Conference

by Jeff Otto with Andrew Petto

Concordia University in Mequon, Wisconsin, was the site of another "Intelligent Design" conference held on June 22-24, 2000.

The true situation is much more complicated: creationism comes in many forms, and not all of them reject evolution.

The Ultra-Fundamentalism of Duane Gish

by George S. Bakken

It is not commonly known that Charles Darwin intended to become a clergyman when he studied at Cambridge, or that the Church of England honored him with burial in Westminster Abbey near Isaac Newton. Many scientists hold strong religious beliefs, but read the Genesis account of creation as did Isaac Newton in his 1681 letter to Thomas Burnett:

Brief History of Creationism

Brief History of Creationism -- From the Middle Ages to "Creation Science"

Soon a very unexpected and troubling pattern emerged.
