Brief of Amici Curiae Biologists and Other Scientists in Support of Defendants

Download PDF

Amici curiae are scientists who oppose any attempt to define the nature of science in a way that would limit their ability to follow the evidence wherever it may lead. Since the identification of intelligent causes is a well established scientific practice in fields such as forensic science, archaeology, and exobiology, Amici urge this Court to reject plaintiffs’ claim that the application of intelligent design to biology is unscientific. Any ruling that depends upon an oudated or inaccurate definition of science, or which attempts to define the boundaries of science, could hinder scientific progress.
