Intelligent Designs on Evolution

The controversy over evolutionary teaching is as lively today as ever. As many as nineteen states have taken up the battle over the teaching about the origins of life. Yet there still seems widespread confusion about “Intelligent Design.”

What is this rival theory and what are the motivations of its proponents? Is this a debate of God vs. science or science vs. science? And why has this debate re-surfaced, some 80 years after Williams Jennings Bryan, Clarence Darrow and John Scopes sparred over science, religion and academic freedom?

A documentary produced by American RadioWorks explores the Intelligent Design movement with (among many) its “founder” Phillip Johnson, Pulitzer prize winning historian Ed Larson, and a national radio drama tour of the Scopes Trial, starring Ed Asner.

The feed is scheduled for Jan. 3. KMUW FM 89 in Wichita has announced it will air the special at 9 a.m., Friday, January 6. Check you local public radio station for a listing, or visit the American RadioWorks website to download a podcast.
