Intelligent Design is the proposition that life on Earth is so complex that it could not have arisen through the forces of nature alone, but that at least some aspects of it must have been intelligently designed by a power outside the laws of nature, generally assumed to be God. Proponents of Intelligent Design argue that while some aspects of the theory of evolution are valid, there are many gaps in naturalistic scientific explanations that can only be explained by the presence and actions of this intelligent designer. This category is for sites specifically dealing with the theory of Intelligent Design, the scientific arguments for and against it, and the theological arguments for and against it. Sites dealing with general Creationism, or general controversy over the way that evolution is taught, should be directed to other categories such as Science/Science_in_Society/Science_and_Religion/Evolution/ and Society/Religion_and_Spirituality/Christianity/Perspectives/Origins_and_Creation/Creation_vs_Evolution/
