ABSTRACT
The article relates the author's experience as an expert witness for the plaintiffs in Kitzmiller et al v Dover Area School District in the U.S. He is the co-author of "Creationism's Trojan Horse," which documents that intelligent design is both religious belief and an extension of traditional creationism. The Kitzmiller case was the result of the Center for Science and Culture's relentless execution of its Wedge Strategy, a well-finance personal relation campaign aimed at the media, the public, and educational policymakers.
