"But It's Already Been Refuted!" A List of Key Responses to Criticisms of Intelligent Design

UPDATE: As of 10/11/12 (LOL that date's in sequence) I am getting some assistence from a few comrades in trying to dig through the endless archives of material on the Discovery Institute website. I hope they categorize and organize that stuff better so people just getting into Intelligent Design can realize with less trouble that the books advocating it are far from refuted. Anyways, this is a work in progress and will see some MAJOR changes this month.

This is a series of links to key articles that defend various ID books or the concepts within them. We hope this will serve as a good one-stop source for those who feel overwhelmed by the level of back and forth debate over various ID books and want to learn as much as possible without endless searches.
