5.0 out of 5 stars No doubt about "Doubts", November 12, 2003
This review is from: Doubts About Darwin: A History of Intelligent Design (Hardcover)
Having closely followed Intelligent Design for the past eleven years, I expect any new books in this genre to simply add to my ID knowledge base. THATS NOT WHAT THIS BOOK IS ABOUT!
The "big picture" is critical to an in-depth understanding of any complex endeavor. Since I am by nature a detail person, I must work extra hard to "see" it. However, even hard work won't help you if you lack the analytical tools needed to "step back". This book has provided me a framework with which to understand the ID movement. I'm actually going to re-read some of the key works that were highlighted with the new vantage point that I have.
"Doubts about Darwin" practically turned its own pages! I could not set it down. Not only is the author good at rhetorical analysis, he is an excellent rhetor. (I didn't know the word 'rhetor' before I read Doubts). I especially enjoyed the book within a book. I felt that I was learning on two levels. As he provided rhetorical analysis, he was explaining the process to us. And the footnotes were quite informative. I had to stop and read most of them as I was zipping along. That probably kept me from getting literary indigestion, I was reading so fast!
This is a good read and I heartily recommend it.

Hilarious. It's now 2015 and "god did it" is doing ok among the believers but scientists continue to laugh at such nonsense.
