ABSTRACT
A brief summary of the articles contained in the current issue is provided along with a discussion of some of the educational and civic questions relevant to the topic of intelligent design. An involved review of Charles Darwin's "The Origin of Species" is presented, study of which the author argues would demonstrate both the strengths of evolution and its ongoing debates.
