Intelligent Design

Michael J. Behe site Details the work of Michael J. Behe, author of Darwin’s Black Box, the book which indicates the impossibility of evolution due to the “irreducible complexity” of molecules and cells.

Evangelical Christian Sites

Answers In Genesis This is a very well resourced Evangelical Christian site, which makes information and books etc., available to a world-wide audience. Once there you can choose your preferred language. Some caution is needed in realizing that this is an evangelical site, and thus is not necessarily fully compatible with Catholicism – but as far as can be ascertained, the majority of the material available is essentially concerned with presenting the biblical case for Creation, and this is something that any Catholic should be able to go along with. This is an example of genuine ecumenism!
