ABSTRACT
The article reports on the discharging of eight members of a school board related to the usage of unfamiliar concept leaving them with the option to be re-elected in Dover, Delaware. The decision came after the residents of Dover voted against the members who mandated the mention of "intelligent design," (i.d.) in biology classrooms. Hardly has any scientist agreed with the members on the i.d. concept, while the parents complained that i.d. is more a religious than a scientific idea.
