Forrest and Gross expose the scientific failure, the religious essence, and the political ambitions of "intelligent design" creationism. They examine the movement's "Wedge Strategy, " which has advanced and is succeeding through public relations rather than through scientific research. Analyzing the content and character of "intelligent design theory, " they highlight its threat to public education and to the separation of church and state.
