Trial Over ‘Intelligent Design’ Resumes

Intelligent design suit inspired by local man’s ideas

Critics say ["intelligent design"] is untestable pseudo-science and bad theology. Intelligent design was proposed by English theologian William Paley in 1802, said Sarah Pallas, associate professor of biology at Georgia State University. “That was all debunked at that time. Now the intelligent design people are resurrecting this idea.”

The National Center for Science Education also has coverage of the trial.
