ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Thomas Nagel's views on religion, politics and humanity. Nagel believes that intelligent design is a rationally entertainable alternative hypothesis about the origins of life for many who believe in God. It addresses the controversial claims of Nagel on public education and intelligent design including the frank discussion of the relation of evolutionary theory to religion in some part of the high school curriculum.
