ABSTRACT
The article comments on the decision of U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III on the case concerning intelligent design in Pennsylvania. The judge found that intelligent design violated the centuries-old ground rules of science by invoking supernatural causation and by making assertions that could not be tested or proved wrong. Moreover, ID has not gained acceptance in the scientific community, has not been supported by peer-reviewed research, and has not generated a research and testing program of its own.
