    Ken Miller is a man of many talents. Professor of biology and the co-author of high school biology textbooks used by millions of American students, he was also one of the leading scientific experts who testified for the plaintiffs in the Kitzmiller intelligent design case. Miller, a talented teacher...

    A well written and researched examination of Intelligent Design (ID), its propositions, proponents and ultimate aims. The book shines light on ID for what it is, an anti-intellectual attack by the religious right on not just Darwinism, but the underlying foundations of science itself. As a biologist...

    Ken Miller's book scores well on several points, but ends up weak on the task he set himself.The first three-fifths of this book is a well presented rebuttal on the accusations the Intelligent Design (ID, née Creationism) community has made against the Darwinian theory of evolution.

    This takes a serious look at intelligent design and its many flaws...if you actually think ID is legit, you should check this book out.

    I wish I could get everyone to read this book, as it excellently deals with an issue that is critical to me. Miller's voice is especially insightful as a faithful Catholic, though this book spends less time dealing with the supposed controversies between evolution and religion than Miller's Finding ...

    Well written and erudite. To the point, but not condescending. Dr. Miller, a professor of biology, textbook author, and champion of biological science, presents his points in a way that is both understandable and clear, but also expansive and thought-provoking.I've had this copy on my shelf for seve...

    An incredibly helpful book, with some deeply frustrating features and passages. First, the helpful. The book is well written, lucid, and understandable. I criticized Jerry Coyne's popular book on evolution, because he sprinkled in polemics against creationists, and did so by conflating all creationi...
