Margaret Talbot has an article about the Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School Board case in the new issue of the New Yorker magazine. An interview with Talbot is available online. Here's an excerpt:
... in order to show that intelligent design is not good science, and therefore that it’s unsound pedagogy to be touting it as an alternative to Darwinian evolution, it helps to remind people how broadly supported the theory of evolution is by recent developments across the sciences—in genetics, for example, as well as in paleontology. That was part of the case the plaintiffs’ lawyers made—quite convincingly, I think.
