ABSTRACT
The article comments on the decision of U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III on the case concerning intelligent design in Dover, Pennsylvania. The school board's self-contradictions and what the judge termed outright lies made it clear that members were looking to insert creationism, or as close to it as they could get, into high school science courses.
