The cultural side of the evolution–creation debate, playing out in religion and mass media, is illustrated by the lives of Eugenie Scott and Phillip Johnson. Scott is the director of the anticreationist National Center for Science Education. Johnson is a Berkeley law professor, an anti‐Darwinist, and an intelligent design leader. Against the backdrop of an Arkansas court case and California debates, here is a history of the Center's work, rooted in the 1970s, and Johnson's prominence since the 1990s.
