ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Judge John Jones, who ruled against proponents of intelligent design, calling the phrase a relabelling of creationism designed to get around a 1987 judicial ban on teaching creationism as science in public schools. The article discusses the increased impact of the judge's ruling, given that he was a U.S. President George W. Bush-appointed Republican and a Lutheran.
