Join Us in Advancing the Case for Intelligent Design — Give to Discovery Institute Today!

christmas-decorations-1149929_640.jpg Last month, pro-intelligent design scientists from around the world spoke publicly at a packed conference at Cambridge University organized by Discovery Institute and the UK’s Centre for Intelligent Design. They highlighted the growing evidence for intelligent design throughout nature. The very same day, a writer for the London Spectator — one of the world’s oldest and most distinguished English-language magazines — named Evolution: Still a Theory in Crisis by Discovery Institute geneticist Michael Denton as one of the best books of 2016. Praising Denton for “a truly great book” that shows how genetics “destroys the Darwinian position,” the reviewer declared: “It is hard to see how anyone reading his book could not be persuaded.” The good news keeps coming. For much of this year, molecular biologist Doug Axe’s book Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life is Designed has remained a bestseller at Amazon in both developmental biology and organic evolution, outselling books by Richard Dawkins, Jerry Coyne, Stephen Jay Gould, and many other titans of the Darwinist regime. In the words of Bob Dylan, “The times they are a-changin.” Would you consider playing a key role in fueling more change through the work of Discovery Institute and its Fellows? The Darwinist Establishment fights us, unwilling to give up their destructive belief that life is the product of a blind and undirected process. But your support this year will enable us to go around the Establishment and communicate the increasingly persuasive evidence for intelligent design to more people like never before. Each year, we provide free access to you and millions of others to thousands of articles and hundreds of podcasts and videos. Each year, our Fellows and affiliated scholars publish important new books about the evidence for design in nature. But creating this content is NOT free. We don’t receive government grants. We rely on people like you who are interested in seeing real change in both science and culture. By making an end-of-year donation to Discovery Institute, you can reach millions of Evolution News readers and social media users with the powerful message of intelligent design in 2017. You can mentor and equip a new group of young scientists from Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America through our 2017 summer seminars. And you can bring about the publication of more path-breaking new books, including Zombie Science, biologist Jonathan Wells’s long-awaited sequel to his blockbuster Icons of Evolution. Are you ready to change the status quo in science and renew our culture? Make an end-of-year gift today! Photo credit: Unsplash via Pixabay.
