And this beats der Fuehrer? So World War II was for nothing? Wow.

The list’s author tried to cover his base by asserting that his 10 through to 1 list order isn’t supposed to mean anything. Just an accident with numbers, like the universe itself?

Lists can be fun. So here’s the contest:


List the ten most significant ID books of the last 25 years, and for the first three, give a brief explanation of what you think makes the book significant.

The prize is a copy of The Nature of Nature , the must-have collection of the best on both sides of the ID controversy.

Contest judged Saturday July 9.
