    In the landmark decision of Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District, Judge John E. Jones soundly argues that intelligent design (ID) does not represent a scientific theory, but rather a religious argument whose teaching in public schools violates the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. This argument exhibits both logical validity and true premises in its categorization of the theory as non-scientific, thus being truly sound. In essence, the decision states that ID fails in two major areas – (1) it implies, and even arguably requires, the existence of a supernatural entity; and (2) it entails a false dichotomy in the vein of earlier creationist ideas. Jones argues that each of these individual premises precludes…

    Looking at the idea around Intelligent Design and the idea of there being a designer was quite interesting to read about this semester.
