Traipsing Into Evolution: Intelligent Design and the Kitzmiller vs. Dover DecisionJohn West and Casey Luskin respond to Judge John Jones's written decision in the case Kitzmiller versus Dover Area School District. The case was a challenge to the Dover, Pennsylvania school board's decision to make students aware of the theory of intelligent design. Judge Jones ruled that the board's policy violated the Constitution because intelligent design amounts to little more than a religious theory. Mr. West and Mr. Casey review the case and argue that the theory of intelligent design is based on science not religion, and that proponents of intelligent design want to challenge the teaching of evolution on scientific grounds not religious ones. This event was hosted by the Discovery Institute in Washington, DC.John West, senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, is associate director of the Institute's Center for Science and Culture and associate professor of political science at Seattle Pacific University. His books include The Politics of Revelation & Reason: Religion and Civic Life in the New Nation and Celebrating Middle Earth: The Lord of the Rings as a Defense of Western Civilization. Casey Luskin, currently an attorney, was a researcher at the Scripps Institution for Oceanography from 1997 to 2002. He is is co-founder of the Intelligent Design and Evolution Awareness Center.moreless
