ABSTRACT
The article discusses the place of intelligent design theory in the history of debates between evolution and creationism and provides a possible explanation for its emergence at this time. Insights taken from the works of Stephen Meyer and Michael Behe are discussed, such as the Darwinian attachment to metaphysical materialism, alongside a critique of these design theorists. The author also argues that the intelligent design description of complexity still does not meet the minimal criterion in order to be considered even a modest form of naturalism.
