We promote the scientific evidence of intelligent design because proper consideration of that evidence is necessary to achieve not only scientific objectivity but also constitutional neutrality
: Intelligent Design The theory of intelligent design (ID) holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause rather than an undirected process such as natural selection
ID is thus a scientific disagreement with the core claim of evolutionary theory that the apparent design of living systems is an illusion
In a broader sense, Intelligent Design is simply the science of design detection -- how to recognize patterns arranged by an intelligent cause for a purpose
Design detection is used in a number of scientific fields, including anthropology, forensic sciences that seek to explain the cause of events such as a death or fire, cryptanalysis and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI)
An inference that certain biological information may be the product of an intelligent cause can be tested or evaluated in the same manner as scientists daily test for design in other sciences
AAAS News Release - Intelligent Design Theory
Resolution on intelligent design theory which rejects the theory as an inadequate
competitor to evolution.
| News Archives AAAS Board Resolution on Intelligent Design Theory The contemporary theory of biological evolution is one of the most robust products of scientific inquiry
Over the past several years proponents of so-called 'intelligent design theory, ' also known as ID, have challenged the accepted scientific theory of biological evolution
As part of this effort they have sought to introduce the teaching of 'intelligent design theory' into the science curricula of the public schools
The movement presents 'intelligent design theory' to the public as a theoretical innovation, supported by scientific evidence, that offers a more adequate explanation for the origin of the diversity of living organisms than the current scientifically accepted theory of evolution
In response to this effort, individual scientists and philosophers of science have provided substantive critiques of 'intelligent design, ' demonstrating significant conceptual flaws in its formulation, a lack of credible scientific evidence, and misrepresentations of scientific facts

FAIR I am writing you with much concern after having read of your hearing to decide whether the alternative theory of Intelligent Design should be taught along with the theory of Evolution
I am concerned, however, that students will only hear one theory of Intelligent Design
Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design
If the Intelligent Design theory is not based on faith, but instead another scientific theory, as is claimed, then you must also allow our theory to be taught, as it is also based on science, not on faith
I think we can all look forward to the time when these three theories are given equal time in our science classrooms across the country, and eventually the world; One third time for Intelligent Design, one third time for Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, and one third time for logical conjecture based on overwhelming observable evidence

Vatican Astronomer: Intelligent Design is Not Science By Nicole Winfield Associated Press posted: 18 November 2005 02:03 pm ET Untitled Document VATICAN CITY (AP) -- The Vatican's chief astronomer said Friday that "intelligent design'' isn't science and doesn't belong in science classrooms, the latest high-ranking Roman Catholic official to enter the evolution debate raging in the United States
George Coyne, the Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory, said placing intelligent design ideas alongside the theory of evolution in school programs was "wrong'' and was akin to mixing apples with oranges
"Intelligent design isn't science even though it pretends to be, '' the ANSA news agency quoted Coyne as saying on the sidelines of a conference in Florence
"If you want to teach it in schools, intelligent design should be taught when religion or cultural history is taught, not science.'' SPECIAL REPORT Evolution & Intelligent Design PART 1 This Trojan Horse for Creationism has become very popular

Summary of an article in L'Osservatore Romano, which stated that the theory is
and only creates confusion between religious and scientific fields.CNS Story: DESIGN-LOSSERVATORE Jan-17-2006 (510 words) xxxi Intelligent design not science, says Vatican newspaper article By John Thavis VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Intelligent design is not science and should not be taught as a scientific theory in schools alongside Darwinian evolution, an article in the Vatican newspaper said
The article said that in pushing intelligent design some groups were improperly seeking miraculous explanations in a way that creates confusion between religious and scientific fields
At the same time, scientists should recognize that evolutionary theory does not exclude an overall purpose in creation -- a 'superior design' that may be realized through secondary causes like natural selection, it said
The article noted that the debate over intelligent design -- the idea that certain features of life and the universe are best explained by an intelligent designer rather than adaptive evolution -- has spread from the United States to Europe
The problem with intelligent design is that it turns to a 'superior cause' -- understood though not necessarily named as God -- to explain supposed shortcomings of evolutionary science

For instance, in The Meaning of Evolution , George Gaylord Simpson repeats what is surely the 'official' dogma of the contemporary scientific guild: 'Man is the result of a purposeless and natural process that did not have him in mind.' This far-reaching claim contrasts with earlier scientific wisdom, which held that man was designed by an intelligent being, a fact that grounded both his freedom and his moral responsibility
Darwin and the materialist view of reality So what changed? While most historical events have multiple causes, Charles Darwin's theoretical coupling of natural selection with random variations clearly provided the impetus for removing the concept of design from the biological sciences
Darwin's theory was revolutionary because it banished the concept of intelligent design from biology, consigning it to a marginal theological ghetto

Public release date: 14-Feb-2004 [ | ] Contact: Ronald Numbers 608-262-3701 Intelligent design: The new 'big tent' for evolution's critics SEATTLE - Since the advent of Darwinism in the mid-19th century, a variety of movements have jousted for the intellectual high ground in the epic evolution versus creationism debate
The newest combatants, known as 'intelligent-design theorists, ' reject both theistic and naturalistic evolution and, instead, claim evidence of the hand of an unknown 'intelligent designer' in the genesis of life
But for Ron Numbers, the leading historian of the struggle between Darwinism and the anti-evolution movements of the past 140 years, intelligent design is simply the latest effort to create a 'big tent for all people critical of evolution.' As he views it, there are significant differences between scientific creationism and intelligent design
First, adherents of intelligent design scrupulously avoid biblical arguments to undermine evolutionary theory and argue instead that the subcellular complexity of life demands a knowing designer
What's more, many who subscribe to intelligent design theory have no problem accepting the great antiquity of life on Earth

We are building on this momentum, broadening the wedge with a positive scientific alternative to materialistic scientific theories, which has come to be called the theory of intelligent design (ID)
Design theory promises to reverse the stifling dominance of the materialist worldview, and to replace it with a science consonant with Christian and theistic convictions
This combination of scientific and scholarly expertise and media and political connections makes the Wedge unique, and also prevents it from being 'merely academic.' Other activities include production of a PBS documentary on intelligent design and its implications, and popular op-ed publishing
Once our research and writing have had time to mature, and the public prepared for the reception of design theory, we will move toward direct confrontation with the advocates of materialist science through challenge conferences in significant academic settings
We will also pursue possible legal assistance in response to resistance to the integration of design theory into public school science curricula
The attention, publicity, and influence of design theory should draw scientific materialists into open debate with design theorists, and we will be ready
Discovery Institute's "Wedge project" Circulates Online

widely-circulated position paper on intelligent design.
Feature Discovery Institute's "Wedge Project" Circulates Online by James Still A recently-circulated position paper of (CRSC) reveals an ambitious plan to replace the current naturalistic methodology of science with a theistic alternative called "intelligent design." The CRSC, a program launched by the Discovery Institute in 1996, is the major force behind recent advances in the intelligent design movement
Its mission is "to replace materialism and its destructive cultural legacies with a positive scientific alternative." The Discovery Institute hopes that intelligent design will be the usurper that finally dethrones the theory of evolution
On March 3, 1999, an anonymous person obtained an internal white paper from the CRSC entitled "The Wedge Project, " which detailed the Center's ambitious long-term strategy to replace "materialistic science" with intelligent design
We are building on this momentum, broadening the wedge with a positive scientific alternative to materialistic scientific theories, which has come to be called the theory of intelligent design (ID)
