ABSTRACT
The article focuses on intelligent design activities. Intelligent design does not even attempt to prove the type of deity involved, it just points to some sort of supernatural intervention. In other words, he says that intelligent design does not have any theology to it. It is that distinction that has helped propel the small community of intelligent design proponents to the forefront of U.S. politics. In 1987, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that mandated teaching 'creation science' in schools because the premise of the research was based on biblical texts. As intelligent design does not draw directly from biblical sources, Christian fundamentalist groups have seized on it as a possible way to force creationism back into the classroom.
