Articles and Books for Further Reading on the Intelligent Design Creationism Problem


1. The April, 2000 issue of Natural History Magazine will carry several articles on this topic.

2. TIME MAGAZINE, March 11, page 64.

"Is there a place in evolutionary theory for the hand of God? Maybe in Ohio. Hearings start this month."

3. SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, March, 2001, pages 50-55, "If Humans Were built to Last."

This is discussed extensively in the lecture notes. The posting on the Web site is only a summary. Due to the copyright restrictions under which I reproduced the article for the lecture, I cannot make any further copies. However, you should find Scientific American in any standard library.
