Earlier this week, PBS’s NOVA aired a two-hour program revisiting the controversial federal case, Kitzmiller v. Dover School District, which asked whether “intelligent design” could be taught in American schools alongside Darwin’s theory of evolution. Intelligent design essentially holds that “life is too complex to have evolved naturally and therefore must have been designed by an intelligent agent.” And, along the way, it effectively attempts to make God’s role in creating the world a scientific fact, not an item of faith. You can see how the backers of intelligent design ultimately fared. NOVA has made the program available online for free. It’s divided into 12 videos, and you can watch them here.
