Intelligent Design "theory" [Book Review]
BioScience 51 (5):411-414 (2001)
|Abstract||Because there are omissions, simplifi- cations, and inaccuracies in some general biology textbooks, obviously the modern theory of evolution must be wrong. This is the astounding line of rea- soning that is the backbone of Jonathan Wells’s Icons of Evolution. It is the latest book in a series of neocreationist pro- ductions (this one dressed with the slightly more respectable label of “intel- ligent design theory” [Pigliucci 2000a]) to drive a stake into the perceived perni- ciousness of modern science, and of bi- ology in particular. This is another astonishing example of the fact that evo- lution deniers seem to consider attacks on science popularizing to be genuine in- tellectual feats, as if they had found huge holes in the primary literature that con- stitutes the core of any respectable science.|
