Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial captures the turmoil that tore apart the community of Dover, Pennsylvania in a landmark battle over the teaching of evolution in public schools. In 2004, the Dover school board ordered science teachers to read a statement to high school biology students about an alternative to Darwin s theory of evolution called intelligent design the idea that life is too complex to have evolved naturally and so must have been designed by an intelligent agent. The teachers refused to comply, and both parents and teachers filed a lawsuit in federal court accusing the school board of violating the constitutional separation of church and state.

Now, NOVA explores the arguments by lawyers and expert witnesses in riveting detail and provides an eye-opening crash course on questions such as What is evolution? and Is intelligent design a scientifically valid alternative? Featuring trial reenactments based on court transcripts and interviews with key participants and expert scientists, this gripping program presents the celebrated case of Kitzmiller v. Dover School District.

"We werent asking the teachers to become priests or anything, we were just asking them to lie to their students, and for some reason the teachers didnt like that"

Hey school board! Thou shalt not lie! Did that ever cross your minds?

Always tell the truth so you don't have to remember the lie..

8:29 "over a one minute statement" I think he missed the point, they were upset because you have beared false witness, not because you have "other standards" than people who thinks lying in court is wrong.

My sister in law was raised in New York and went to a Catholic school. One day at school the class was studying science and my sister said to her teacher (a nun) that the science book conflicted with the bible. Sister Mary said that where the bible conflicts with the bible, go with the science because the bible IS NOT A SCIENCE BOOK. Boy, those catholics have really come around. It only took them a couple thousand years.

If this was made into a movie i nominate Rod Steiger to play Bill Buckingham he will capture the naive bigotry perfectly
