ABSTRACT
The article discusses intelligent design and scientist Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. Darwin's venerable theory is widely regarded as one of the best-supported ideas in science, the only explanation for the diversity of life on Earth, grounded in decades of study and objective evidence. Scientists in the U.S. who believe in intelligent design do not feel it is ready for prime time. Many would prefer to move forward gradually, building their case, in order to avoid a backlash. INSET: Darwinians vs. Anti-Darwinians.
