Summary Describes the theory of intelligent design's quasi-scientific origins and documents the Dover, Penn. court battle over teaching it in biology classes. Examines whether advocates of the intelligent design theory are really creationists in disguise and discusses how the intelligent design argument has widened America's cultural divide. Provides a historical overview of the creation vs. evolution debate in the United States, highlighting 20th-century struggles over separation of church and state and the implications that these issues present for American education
