Intelligent Design Graphics and Other Origins Graphics
The IDEA Center has created and / or archived some graphics which we hope you can use, free of charge. If you are going to use any of them, we would appreciate it if you would e-mail us to request permission at email@example.com. Portions of some of the graphics we made are modified images from other graphics, which we have referenced to enlarge. Please click each graphic to enlarge, and enjoy!
Uses a modified image from Ted's Indian Arrowhead and Artifact Collection. Thanks to Stephen Huxley for the design.
Uses a modified image from 1999 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine Poster
Uses a small part of a modified image from Biochemistry by Voet and Voet. Originally found on IDEA Club at UCSD website.
This entirely fictional graphic depicts Charles Darwin reading a newspaper, The Light Bulb. The sketch of Darwin is from http://members.tripod.com/beckysroom/darwin.jpg and was probably drawn around 1840. The newspaper graphic is from http://www.scholars.umd.edu/bse/newspaper.jpg. We depict a graphic similar to this one in our News Main Menu page.
This graphic is available on various sources from the internet and a particular owner could not be found. The graphic is found on our Listserves and Discussion Boards Page.
This graphic is listed with permission from Illinois artist Alfred J. Smuskiewicz. Mr. Smuskiewicz retains full ownership and copyright of this graphic. Be sure to visit his website where you can view more of his artistic graphics on the synthesis of science and religion. We are thankful to show this graphic on our Religious and Scientific Affiliations of the IDEA Center page.
This famous graphic comes from the painting of the Sistine Chapel by the Italian artist Michelangelo Buonarroti. Commissioned by the Pope in 1508, Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel between 1508 and 1512.
This entirely fictional graphic depicts Charles Darwin reading the IDEA Center's newsletter, The Light Bulb. The sketch of Darwin is from http://members.tripod.com/beckysroom/darwin.jpg and was probably drawn around 1840. The newspaper graphic is from http://www.scholars.umd.edu/bse/newspaper.jpg. We depict this graphic in our News Main Menu page.
This grahpic uses DNA modified from http://www.library.mcgill.ca/bwood/Journals.htm, a bacteria image modified from http://www.extension.iastate.edu/foodsafety/Lesson/L1/graphics/bacteria.gif, and a tree modified from whose original whereabouts we were not able to ascertain. The tree depicts a common finding in systematics where the distribution of character traits does not allow a neat hierarchically nested tree to be created. This implicates the breakdown of common descent. The graphic is used in our Genetics, Microbiology, and Systematics News Updates page.
This graphic uses a graphic depicting a bacteria with many flagella from http://www.terravista.pt/enseada/4362/Fotos.htm to show how different people see the evidence through a different pair of eyes. In effect, we all see the world through a unique pair of "glasses" and those glasses (our "bias") colors how we see the world. More information, including this graphic, is found in our IDEA Center Philosophy page.
This "DNA Question Mark" uses a highly modified DNA graphic from http://www.neanderthal-modern.com/images/dna.gif. The graphic is used in our IDEA Center FAQ page.
This graphic is used on our Education, Law, and Politics News Updates page.
This flagellum graphic was taken from the Access Research Network's Molecular Machines Graphics Index. The graphic may be found at http://www.arn.org/docs/mm/motor.htm. We use this graphic on our Science of IDEA Center page.
This graphic, depicting the similarity of the Galapagos Finches, famous for having helped Darwin in developing his theory of evolution, uses graphics taken from the book Icons of Evolution. We depict the graphic in our Evolutionary Biology Origins News Updates page.
This graphic uses a modified graphic of a dinosaur, wearing a hat and holding rock hammer graphic, over a diagram of the Cambrian Explosion from On the Origin of Stasis by Art Battsen. This graphic is displayed on our Paleontology News Updates page.
This graphic shows a microscope from The EPA website and a modified graphic of a Bible from . We depict this graphic on our Science and Religion News Updates page.
This graphic uses a DNA molecule from http://www.columbia.edu/cu/opg/images/dna.jpg, a lightning -in-the-cloudes graphic whose origin we seem to have misplaced, and a question mark from http://www.nickles.com/common/graphics/rig-question-mark.gif. This graphic is depicted on our Origins of Life News Updates page
This graphic depicts the mountainside-sculpture of four U.S. Presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln) on Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. Mount Rushmore provides a good simple example of how we infer design in nature when we see complexity that matches a specified pattern. In the picture, the presidents are thinking about the design of a flagellum. The Mt. Rushmore graphic was taken from http://www.bdf2001.com/images/Presidents-Mt-Rushmore.jpg and the flagellum graphic was taken from http://www.arn.org/docs/mm/n.htm. The graphic is listed on our Intelligent Design News Updates page.
This graphic depicts a human skull on a black box. It begs us to ask the question if many ideas about human origins are based in part upon philosophy, and not just science. The graphic is listed on our Human Evolution and Human Interest News Updates page.
This graphic most likely depicts the inner region, or nucleus, of galaxy "NGC 4314," as seen by the Hubble Space Telescope. A report on this finding can be read at http://mcdonaldobservatory.org/news/releases/2002/0409.html. The graphic is listed on our Physics and Cosmology News Updates Page.
This graphic shows the ideal way to practice origins science, where only the scientific method--not religion or naturalistic philosophy--is guiding the research. The graphic was modified from the Intelligent Design Network's Teaching Resources Page. We use it on our Our Beliefs page.
This article combines a drawing of the 19th century British naturalist Thomas Henry Huxley from http://www.born-today.com/Today/pix/huxley_th.jpg with an image of a newsman. The graphic, of course, is fictional. It is posted on our Press Releases page.
This drawing, taken from http://www.apologetics.org/articles/wager1.html is based off a painting by ??? depicting well known personalities in the creation - evolution debate. Can you name the people in this graphic? Moving from left to right, the graphic includes Michael Behe, Stephen Jay Gould, Richard Dawkins, ???, Jody Nilsen, Charles Darwin, and Phillip Johnson. The graphic is depicted on our Quotes Collections Page.
This graphic depicts some of the famous stone head statues from Easter Island reading well known books from the intelligent design movement (Darwin's Black Box by Michael Behe and Icons of Evolution by Jonathan Wells). The Easter Island statue picture is taken from http://www.unmuseum.org/eaststa2.jpg. The statues provide an example of the "design inference" in action, as we can tell that they were designed and are not mere geological features because their complex structure matches a known pattern. The graphic is listed on our main Lending Library page
