My reviews of Phillip Kitcher’s Living With Darwin and Francisco Ayala’s Evolution and Intelligent Design are now available over at Skeptic’s website. Enjoy!
I should probably mention that I wrote this review some time ago, and in the meantime Ayala has published a slightly more detailed book on the same subject, entitled Darwin’s Gift. I got about fifty pages into it before being sidetracked by other reading. I’ll withhold final judgment until I’ve read the whole thing, but my impression is that the new book gives me no reason to revise my opinion of Ayala’s arguments.
