The article focuses on the book "Debating Design: From Darwin to DNA," by W. Dembski and M. Ruse. The book provides information on leading figures in the evolution debate to argue their respective positions. Darwinism, Self-Organisation, Theistic Evolution and Intelligent Design are represented in turn, with contributions from scientists, theologians and philosophers, most based in the U.S. Not all of the alternatives to Darwinism are theistic, but there is a commonly held belief among opponents that natural laws are not enough to explain nature.
