It is common that critics of intelligent design misrepresent the nature of intelligent design in order to make it sound unscientific, unconstitutional, and unpalatable to scientists and the public.

This week Discovery President Bruce Chapman interviews Gonzaga law school professor, and Discovery senior fellow, David DeWolf about last year’s federal intelligent design trial, Kitzmiller vs. Dover School District. DeWolf is the co-author of the new book “Traipsing Into Evolution: Intelligent Design and the Kitzmiller v. Dover Decision” a critique of federal Judge John E. Jones’s decision in the Kitzmiller v. Dover case, the first trial to attempt to address the constitutionality of teaching intelligent design in public schools. In this concise yet comprehensive response, Discovery Institute scholars and attorneys show how Judge Jones’s Kitzmiller decision was based upon faulty reasoning, non-existent evidence, and a serious misrepresentation of the scientific theory of intelligent design.
