The textbook referenced by the Dover School District, Of Pandas and People, was revised after the 1987 Supreme Court ruling which banned the teaching of creationism alongside evolution. The original version of the text referred to Creationism as the explanation for the creation of the world. Of course, this is a huge victory for the ACLU who are probably going to run away with this one, but despite that, the theory of Intelligent Design is still vastly different than that of Creationism. The fact is, the ACLU wants to make this an establishment clause case and, in my opinion, it simply is not because the idea of intelligent design does not promote any religion.
