Our "FAQs" and "Primers" are summaries (sometimes illustrated) of topics of interest in the debate over intelligent design (ID) and evolution. "F.A.Q.s" are answers to Frequently Asked Questions. "Primers" are short introductions to common topics. Some of these pages are general, and might not have references...so, if you thirst for more detail, try looking at the articles section or just e-mail us.
It should be noted that answers to FAQs are our opinions of the best answers, and much of this material is covered in more (and often better) detail in the ID literature. See the links at right for more detail.
Finally, we recommend our "Evolution Primer" and "Intelligent Design Theory in a Nutshell" as the most informative introductory articles listed here. Thanks and please enjoy!
