Judge Jones' findings addressed several important points in the debate between Intelligent Design advocates and the general science society. Briefly, the points are:
- Intelligent Design is not science.
- Intelligent Design is religious.
- Intelligent Design should not be taught in science classes.
- Intelligent Design is not an alternative to evolution.
There is not doubt that this ruling will be contested by Intelligent Design's advocates. Yet equally there is no that the men and women who have fought preserve the integrity of State and Science will continue their fight.
