ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the rhetorical approach of intelligent design (ID) theorists in the case of Ohio as it spread out in public documents, radio shows, polls, and newspapers. It defines a manufactured controversy as the one that legitimizes and necessitates the inclusion of alternatives in science curriculum of Ohio. Based on the Ohio debate, it notes that the technical argument's success depends on the ability of its supporters to make it pertinent to a non-technical listener.
