ABSTRACT
The article informs that supporters of "intelligent design" ventured deep into the realm of biological and chemical research last week in an attempt to show the concept's scientific legitimacy alongside the theory of evolution. Lawyers for the Dover school district, in south-central Pennsylvania, opened their defense of a policy exposing students to intelligent design on October 17, 2005, with the help of a prominent advocate. Michael J. Behe, a biochemistry professor at Lehigh University, offered the court what amounted to a broad tutorial on the controversial explanation of how life developed, in testimony covering everything from the mechanics of blood clotting to the movement of bacteria.
