ABSTRACT
The article discusses the issue over the proposed teaching of intelligent design (ID) to schools in the U.S. alongside Charles Darwin's evolution theory. President George W. Bush favored this alternative theory, which states that behind the earth's evolution somebody is interfering. It cites the case filed against a Pennsylvania school board by parents of students who are required to undergo ID. Judge John E. Jones favored the complainants believing that the school was wrong in implementing ID.
