Did you see the 2 hour Nova special recently on the Intelligent Design (ID) debate? It revolved around an historic Federal case that pitted Creationists against Darwinists in 2004, basically it was the “Scopes Monkey trial” all over again as religion tries to find its way back into public schools in place of, or to be considered side by side with, scientific evidence and reason.
The Dover trial was the latest in a long line of court cases involving the teaching of evolution, but it was exceptional in that it was the first case that tested the legality of teaching Intelligent Design in a science class. The decision at Dover determined that ID was unscientific and fundamentally religious.
That’s not to say that the Discovery Institute and other ID proponents have packed up and called it a day; instead, they seem to simply be changing tactics.
Ars Technica takes a look at these changes in tactical rebranding, if you have an interest in this debate from either side you should read this article.
You can watch the Nova program on ID that includes reenactments of key testimony during the trial, they broke it up into 12 chapters.
