Design in nature has become so obvious that it can no longer be ignored.

Often, the solutions we see in animals and even plants are far more better than anything human engineers have invented.

This is good news for advocates of intelligent design (ID) for whom May has been a good month.

First, mathematician Granville Sewell (University of Texas at El Paso) and informatics expert Winston Ewert took part in a conference on evolution at Uskudar University in Istanbul.

Then, ID heavyweights Douglas Axe and Michael Behe were at Brazil’s Mackenzie Presbyterian University (Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie) in São Paulo to inaugurate a research centre on ID.
