ABSTRACT
The article comments on the decision of U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III on the case concerning intelligent design (ID) in Dover, Pennsylvania. The judge has said that the citizens of the Dover area were poorly served by the members of the board who voted for the ID policy. The author points out that in violating the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution, the board members, especially those who lied on the witness stand in a pathetic attempt to defend their insistence on teaching creationism along with valid science, threw their oaths as public servants to uphold the law out the window.
