Welcome to!

This web site, a sub-site of, is a response to the "Intelligent Design" movement of creationism. It is dedicated to:

  • Assessing the claims of the Intelligent Design movement from the perspective of mainstream science
  • Addressing the wider political, cultural, philosophical, moral, religious, and educational issues that have inspired the ID movement
  • Providing an archive of materials that critically examine the scientific claims of the ID movement.

We feel that the "Intelligent Design" arguments require this kind of focused attention due to their widespread use in antievolutionary activity.

Change at TalkDesign

TalkDesign is moving away from static, hand-written HTML pages to a spiffy content management system, Civicspace. The theme, for the moment, is the "interlaced" theme. We hope that with the change in system, more of the TalkDesign crew will participate in expanding the content here on the system. While much of this will be articles from the Panda's Thumb weblog, the advantage here will be the ability to organize that content topically. You can see that already in the "Articles" navigation on the sidebar, with our various articles now conveniently tagged for various categories for content and personalities in the "intelligent design" movement.
