A debate has arisen over a Pennsylvania school board's decision to teach both intelligent design and evolution in the classroom. Here are some highlights from the trial.
  • Defense asks that scientific facts be stricken from the record
  • Beautiful painting of God creating universe with anvil and hammer admitted as evidence
    Defense appeals to jury's reason, fairness, and fear of eternal damnation
  • Final deliberations interrupted twice by mailmen, first bearing kids' letters to Jesus, then bearing kids' letters to Darwin
  • Monkey called as witness fails to identify anyone in courtroom as his descendant
  • Darwin found guilty on all charges
  • It is proven that this country is going to hell, but not for the reasons the intelligent design supporters think
