The Wedge

For those who have nosed around the ID issue, The Wedge will be a familiar document. For those who haven't, in a nutshell it was a document formulated in the late '90s by what is now known as the Discovery Instiute which outlined the broad aims and methods of the ID movement.

It was leaked and has proven something of an embarassment; this is for a number of reasons, principally because it suggests (being kind here) that the ultimate goal of the movement is religious.

Anyway, here is a copy, just released, in its original form (and easier to read). Some useful background info from the recent star witness at the Dover trial can be found here.
