MercatorNet update ~ Week ending February 18
http://www.mercatornet.com


---------------------------------------------------------------------
SPECIAL ISSUE ON EVOLUTION
---------------------------------------------------------------------

One of last year's great controversies was over the teaching of evolution in American schools and attempts to introduce Intelligent Design as an alternative scientific theory. Despite Danish cartoons, the war on terror and a US judge's decision on the school issue, this debate is not going away.

So this week we have three articles on the subject: an overview of ID by Calgary Herald columnist Joe Woodard; a look at the polemics of today's Darwinians by Sydney medical student Phillip Elias; and a follow-up interview with philosopher Santiago Collado in which he explains further his views on ID.

I hope you find all this as illuminating as I did.
As always, your feedback and suggestions are welcome.

DISCOVERING LIFE'S DESIGN By Joe Woodard
The push to teach Intelligent Design as science in America's schools has reignited the long-standing debate between creationists and evolutionists over how life began.

DARWINISM STRIKES BACK By Phillip Elias
It would be easier to hear the arguments for Darwin's theory if certain disciples of his would stop talking down religion.

THE LIMITS OF SCIENCE By Michael Cook
Intelligent Design is compatible with Christian theology, but it is not the only approach to evolution that is. Philosopher Santiago Collado clarifies his views.
