This chapter demonstrates that Intelligent Design can be called a form of neocreatonism that, just like old-style creationism, confuses the word “theory” with the words “postulate” and “fact”. It shows that Intelligent Design implies purpose in the universe, a concept that science can neither support nor refute. It further describes creation myths as found in Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism, discussing how these myths influence scientific thinking in various societies.

Keywords:   Buddhism, creation myths, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, neocreationism
