ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's opinion on issues addressing religious beliefs in class. The author discussed the court's decision on the case Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District. U.S. District Court Judge John E. Jones III struck down a school board resolution and school district directive that require ninth-grade biology teachers to tell students that evolution is a mere theory rather than a fact and that intelligent design (ID) and evolution are both scientific theories about the origin of species. The author agrees with Judge Jones that ID is a religious belief rather than a scientific theory, and therefore, the Establishment Clause prohibits public schools from teaching about ID as a scientific theory.
