Recommended Literature Pertaining to Intelligent Design
These are the books that anyone interested in ID must read- and that goes for anyone who wants to refute ID (you can't refute what you don't understand).
1) Nature, Design and Science: The Status of Design in Natural Science by Del Ratzsch
2) The Design Matrix: A Consilience of Clues by Mike Gene
These first two books are not just recommended, they are required to get an understanding of what is being debated and how it should be approached. IOW they help set the table for the context of the debate.
The rest of the books finish setting the table and provide scientific data, observations and evidence that supports the design inference.
3) Signs of Intelligence: Understanding Intelligent Design edited by Wm. Dembski & James Kushiner (15 authors weigh in on the side of Intelligent Design)
4) The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design by Jonathon Wells (replaced Darwin’s Black Box by Michael Behe, because Behe makes the same points in books 3 & 5)
5) Darwinism, Design and Public Education edited by John Angus Campbell and Stephen C. Meyer (several topics covered with entries from both sides)
6) The Edge of Evolution by Michael Behe
7) The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos is Designed for Discovery by Guillermo Gonzalez & Jay Richards
8) Not By Chance by Lee Spetner (on the list because it deals with “The Blind Watchmaker” by Richard Dawkins)
9) No Free Lunch by Wm. Dembski (low on the list because it is very technical- may substitute The Design Revolution by Wm. Dembski if you would rather pass on the very technical NFL)
10) The Design of Life by Dembski & Wells (replacied "Darwin on Trial")
