ABSTRACT
The article discusses the controversy surrounding the theory of intelligent design (I.D.) and the debate over its teaching in schools as science in the U.S. According to I.D. proponents, biological life has been created by intelligent force and supports its teachings in schools. Different views and opinions have been expressed over this debate. Pennsylvania school board expressed its opinion in the newspaper "The New York Times," on December 20, 2005 urging its students to keep an open mind. The Federal Court of the U.S. gave its verdict on December 21, 2005 that it is unconstitutional to teach I.D. as an alternative to evolution theory in schools. However, Robert Crowther of Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture believes that science will triumph in the end.
