This book makes a compelling case for the idea that the universe didn't come about through the handywork of some magical space pixie. The naysayers will throw about their arguments from incredulity while kicking & screaming but, in the end, even they (if anything like a rational mind still inhabits their bodies) will be forced to admit that this concept deserves serious consideration. Once, it was considered common sense that the sun moved around the Earth. "Look up at the sky and see it for yourself!", they would exclaim. But the thinking mind will take the known facts and discard the hypothesises that don't have compelling evidence to support them in favor of the ones that do. Thus far, only a superstitious mind would put the intelligent design idea into the latter category.
