ABSTRACT
This article speculates on the ruling of Judge John E. Jones III over the Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District case about whether it is constitutional for public-school classes to present the argument of intelligent design. Proponents of intelligent design claimed that it was a bold new scientific idea that had been unfairly maligned. If intelligent design is defeated in the Dover case, its backers will undoubtedly find subtler ways of promoting it.
