LARRY WITHAM has written on on science and religion for Scientific American, Nature, and Christian Century, and he is the author of five books, including Where Darwin Meets the Bible (Oxford). He and his wife and son live in Maryland.
The triumphal Darwinian Centennial in 1959 seemed once and for all to end the argument between science and religion that had been raging since Thomas Huxley took up the cause of evolution in the Victorian era. As far as science was concerned, God was dead—case closed. But in the past two decades, as prize winning science writer Larry Witham shows in By Design, the case has been reopened. Advances in science suggest that the materialist “laws” may be incapable of comprehending the subtleties of evolution.
