Unintelligent Design

The Not-So-Intelligent Designer: Why Evolution Explains the Human Body and Intelligent Design Does Not. By Abby Hafer. Eugene, Oregon: Cascade Books. 2015. ISBN: 9781620329412. 244 pp. Paperback, $31.00.

Intelligent design (ID) maintains that some features of the natural world are best explained by an intelligent cause (presumably God?) rather than by the natural process of evolution. That’s nonsense; evolution explains the natural world much better. Abby Hafer has a doctorate in zoology and teaches human anatomy and physiology at Curry College. She was incensed by the claims of ID, so she wrote this book explaining the history and claims of ID, conclusively debunking it, and demonstrating that no intelligent designer could have created a human body with so many design flaws.
