The chapter is called "Of Clues to Causes" and it's about scientific explanation. That's an interesting and important topic, one that opponents of evolutionary theory rarely understand. Meyer's summary is predictably fluffy but not inaccurate. Those seeking an introduction to philosophical questions pertaining to scientific explanation should look elsewhere, since Meyer says little in the 22-page chapter. His main points:
- There are indeed legitimately scientific means of understanding and seeking explanation for past events.
- These approaches validate ID as a "possible scientific explanation for the origin of biological information."
