This is a marvelous little book and a Sam Harris recommendation. Written by Professor of History and Philosopher of Science Niall Shanks. Prof Shanks does an admirable job of eloquently destroying the ridiculous ID movement. This is a wonderful read for the nonscientist with very informative chapters on thermodynamics and biochemistry. I was actually surprised at how good this book is.  Also a nice forward by Richard Dawkins.

Secularists and natural worldviewers…put this one on your list. You will not be dissapointed.
