Intelligent design has found its way into the headlines, has been spruiked in the Parliament and is w trying to slink into our schools. So where did this wilfully igrant sibling of creationism and its anti-scientific arguments spring from? And why is it refusing to go away?Using all the richness of the scientific and natural worlds, Robyn Williams takes on the stalking monster in a short, wicked and witty debunk of ID. Why make the earth, the solar system, our galaxy and all the rest, he asks, when the Garden of Eden was all that was needed? And then there's lifespan. During long periods of human history, the life expectancy of men was a mere 22 years and children were lucky to toddle, let alone grow up. Why the waste? And shouldn't we sue God for sinus blockages, hernias, appendix flare-ups and piles, t to mention bad backs?This is a book to infuriate the forces of darkness, and anger and amuse the rest of us.
