Interesting- but not quite sure what the message is,

This review is from: Dissent Over Descent: Intelligent Design's Challenge to Darwinism (Hardcover)
This is a fascinating book. It certainly makes you think...but only in patches.
I'm struggling to summarise its message here, and I think that's maybe the problem with it. It covers a wide range of ideas, and has interesting and new light to shine on many currently vexed issues. It makes a strong case that a belief in god (as an organising power in an organised/ comprehensible universe)is actually a prerequisite for making science worthwhile beyond local economic or technological purposes.
There's more to be said on the issues Fuller raises, but this book opens us up to new possibilities, and different viewpoints.
It's not the easiest read, but it's one of few books I think may be worth a second reading to understand its ideas more clearly.
