Intelligent Design from the viewpoint of complex systems theory

Frontiers of Philosophy in China 5 (3):461-470 (2010)
Abstract
Based on an analysis of the origins and characteristics of Intelligent Design (ID), this essay discusses the related issues of probability and irreducible complexity. From the viewpoint of complex systems theory, I suggest that Intelligent Design is not, as certain advocates claim, the only reasonable approach for dealing with the current difficulties of evolutionary biology.
