Doubting Darwin? Creationist Designs on Evolution

by Sahotra Sarkar
Hoboken, NJ: Wiley-Blackwell, 2007. 232 pages.

Sahotra Sarkar, Professor of Integrative Biology and of Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin, offers a powerfully argued arraignment of the scientific bankruptcy of "intelligent design" creationism. William Wimsatt writes, "Sarkar's scientific expositions and dissections of Dembski's specious arguments and Behe's lack of imagination are clear, surgical, and authoritative. For those who would fear a return to the middle ages, this is the best critique of ID now available." And Jeffrey Shallit comments, "Part history, part science, and part philosophy, Doubting Darwin? is a deft critique of the new creationism. Sahotra Sarkar hits all the main points with economy and the broad knowledge of a scientist–philosopher."
