ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the debate over intelligent design (ID), the creationist challenge to Darwinism. 2005 was the year that ID, which argues that living creatures are too complex to have evolved without the influence of an "intelligent designer", became a significant political force in the U.S. By July 2005, 13 states had 18 legislative proposals to introduce ID into the school curriculum. President George W. Bush got involved in August 2005, arguing that science teachers should be allowed to teach both sides of the "debate."
