Discovering Intelligent Design

Gary Kemper, Casey Luskin and Hallie Kemper

The Discovering Intelligent Design textbook is part of a comprehensive curriculum that presents both the biological and cosmological evidence in support of the scientific theory of intelligent design. Developed for middle-school-age students to adults, the curriculum also includes a workbook with learning activities and a DVD with video clips keyed to the content of the textbook. Produced by Discovery Institute in conjunction with Illustra Media, the curriculum is intended for use by homeschools and private schools. The curriculum is divided into six modules that explore topics such as the origin and development of the universe, the origin of biological complexity, the fossil record’s evidence (or lack thereof) for universal common descent, and the broader cultural debate over intelligent design.

Gary Kemper

While Gary was still an undergraduate, testing revealed that he had an unusually high aptitude for scientific analysis. At the age of 19 he began a career as an aerospace systems analyst. He eventually moved on to the entertainment industry and learned the craft of writing. A former skeptic of intelligent design (ID), Gary became a strong supporter of ID after becoming aware of the enormous amount of academic and media misinformation on the subject.
