Responses to Dover Ruling

Traipsing Into EvolutionTraipsing Into Evolution: Intelligent Design and the Kitzmiller vs. Dover Decision
(DI Press, 2006)


Traipsing into Evolution is a book-length critique of federal Judge John E. Jones's decision in the Kitzmiller v. Dover case. 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.
