ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the works of various scientists regarding "intelligent design." William Dembski commented that the work of Charles Darwin entitled "On the Origin of the Species," manifests his ignorance of the mechanisms that underlie the process of natural selection that he described because his molecular explanations of organismal evolution were irreducibly complex. Gregor Mendel's work entitled "Experiments on Plant Hybridization," was widely accepted only after thirty years because his conceptual framework for the genetic processes was so complicated and he himself had no understanding of the nature of the genetic material.
