Intelligent Design -the new Science?
The Intelligent Design (ID) Movement has gained much popularity in both secular and Christian circles in recent years. Dr. Georgia Purdom reveals the history and unravels the good, the bad, and the ugly of this “new” idea regarding origins. The movement’s history, philosophical and theological foundations, and approach to science are important to understanding its impact on Christianity.
Many churches today are reluctant to engage the topic of creationism and instead side-step the issue by supporting Intelligent Design. But is the Intelligent Design movement good or not? Will it help or hurt evangelism and discipleship efforts? In this “Hot Topic” DVD, Dr. Georgia Purdom (Ph.D., molecular genetics) reveals the history and unravels the good, the bad, and the ugly of this “new” idea regarding origins. Excellent for every parent, pastor, and science teacher entrusted with the education of children and/or families.
