Doubting Darwin covers a few of many beliefs in how we came to be, evolution and intelligent design, and how it has influenced the world and in the education system. Many people disagree with intelligent design and other disagree with evolution but some people believe that both had a part in how we came to be.
Evolution is split into to two central concepts. The first is universal common descent, it is the idea that every living creature can be traced back to an unbroken lineage to the same life forms that back then were primitive. The second is natural selection which that the entire complexity and intelligence of life has evolved by many small random mutations. These mutations help organisms survive in many different environments.
The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection. Through the study and analysis of a system's components, a design theorist is able to determine whether various natural structures are the product of chance, natural law, intelligent design, or some combination thereof. I.D. proposes that the living world reflect the design of a conscious, rational intelligence.
Many of the scientist that believe evolution is the way we came to be think that Intelligent design is an assault on the basic principle of enlightenment, that science must explain nature through natural causes. Vic Walczak said “Intelligent design is predicated on a supernatural creator. That’s not science, its religion”.
Many people who believe in Intelligent design said that “everything thing has to be reduced to a chemical reaction is more ideology than science” relating to the theory of evolution. Scientist at the Institute for Creation Research have a view that the Earth was created by god within the past 12,000 years at their museum, where murals of men cavorting with dinosaurs, before the
