ABSTRACT
The article discusses the challenge in the concept of intelligent design which is attacked by scientific inquiry for its ignores scientific validity that may lead to atheism and materialism. Scientists claim that intelligent design is scientifically unproductive for it lacks success in science departments with discovered flaws and unscientific nature. However, new studies support the concept of evolution manifested from modern evidences from fossils, from genetics and from the development of organisms which are products of bias or ideological inflexibility of scientific work.
