ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the decision of U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III, declaring unconstitutional the Dover, Pennsylvania, school board's advocacy of intelligent design is not binding on any other jurisdiction. The author discusses the basis of the court's decision. The decision represents a model for judicial consideration of the proliferating effort to use intelligent design to undermine the teaching of biology. Case law has clarified that this restriction prevents jurisdictions both from prohibiting the teaching of evolution and from requiring the teaching of creationism as science alongside it.
