Denyse O'Leary

Journalist and author Denyse O'Leary, who now co-hosts the weblog 'Uncommon Descent' with William Dembski, recently posted an entry at her blog Post Darwinist which made mention of this blog. From the entry in italics.

Roll on, blogs, roll on: Never be bored!

The blogroll at the side features three new never-be-bored entries.

Intelligent Sequences, featuring William Bradford, currently unpacking the Darwin legend as breathlessly reported in the faith and science media.


Thanks for the comment. Denyse's blog can be accessed at:

Denyse's book 'By Design or by Chance?' filled a vacuum by making available information about intelligent design to the general public. A website features the following book critique:


What the experts are saying about By Design or by Chance? The Growing Controversy on the Origins of Life in the Universe:

“O'Leary provides by far the broadest popular overview yet of the ID movement. She quotes ID leaders such as Phillip Johnson, William Dembski and Michael Behe. She also quotes their sternest critics, including Richard Dawkins, Stephen J. Gould and Michael Ruse. She writes about the Wedge Movement, DNA, the age of the Earth, the search for extraterrestrial life, the teaching of ID in schools, and the monarch butterfly. She anticipates the culmination of the ID revolution by writing that Darwinism ‘was part of our folklore.’ Yet the evolutionary tales she relates are still widely taught as fact in many schools.

This well-organized guidebook of O’Leary’s journey through the world of Intelligent Design has the potential to lead many of the next generation away from the evolutionary fables that now pass for science. Her book is must reading for anyone who wants to understand the history and significance of the Intelligent Design movement. It also belongs in college and even high school classrooms.”

Since the first book Denyse has written 'Faith@Science: Why Science Needs Faith in the 21st Century.'
