2011 SUMMER SCHOOL ON INTELLIGENT DESIGN
Sponsored by the Centre for Intelligent Design
This first UK Summer School on Intelligent Design will inform emerging professionals of the scientific coherence of, and the compelling evidence for Intelligent Design (ID). It will clarify the various strands of the design argument, its basis in science, its distinct stance with respect to religious faith, and its wider implications.
