ABSTRACT
The article discusses the proposed teaching of intelligent design (ID) in public schools in the U.S. as an alternative to the theory of evolution. It highlights the case filed by parents against the local school board in Pennsylvania in connection to the ID issue. The concern of the case is to separate the teaching of religion from science classrooms. According to Judge John E. Jones, the approach is just another brand name of creationism and is an invalid scientific theory.
