Followers of Charles Darwin and proponents of intelligent design stare each other down across a chasm.
After all, On the Origin of Species defined natural selection and spawned the theory of evolution, while intelligent design points to evidence of design in support of the idea of a supreme creator. Yet, when closely examined, Darwin‘s ideas clearly adhere to some of the same tenets as intelligent design.
University of Chicago historian of science Robert J. Richards provides a careful explanation of Darwin’s theory, revealing a fascinating perspective on the role of God and morality in the great scientist’s work.
