Ex nihilo

The article discusses the books "Why Intelligent Design Fails," edited by Matt Young and Taner Edis and "The Cultures of Creationism," edited by Simon Coleman and Leslie Carlin. The thin end of "the wedge" is to induce U.S. states to "rectify ideological imbalance in their science curricula." That, decoded, means getting "intelligent design" theories into classrooms. The partisans of intelligent design typically deny in public that they have any particular designer in mind. The discussion in the "Cultures of Creationism" of the difference between evangelical creationism and that of the original peoples of Australia, is especially thought-provoking.
