ABSTRACT
The article comments on the decision of a federal judge against a Pennsylvania school board, which had tried to sneak religion into the classroom under the guise of intelligent design. His ruling ought to be required reading in the area, where similarly motivated school board members have also attempted to turn biology class into Bible study. According to U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III, the students, parents and teachers of the Dover Area School District deserved better than to be dragged into this legal maelstrom, with its resulting utter waste of monetary and personal resources.
