In his provocative new book Purpose and Desire, J. Scott Turner tells the story about the Christmas pony.
The latest biologist to come out swinging at Darwinism, Dr. Turner is not a proponent of intelligent design.

(We blogged about a similar article by Turner in The Chronicle of Higher Education in January, 2007.) Turner is up front with his skepticism of intelligent design (ID), which will hopefully allow his criticisms to strike a chord with other Darwinists.
