The Dover, PA trial over the teaching in public schools of alternatives to evolution, including intelligent design, began today. Some have dubbed the trial "Scopes II," indicating the high stakes that each side sees riding on its outcome.
Press author Robert T. Pennock will testify on Wednesday as an expert witness on behalf of the plaintiffs. Pennock is the author of Tower of Babel (1999) and editor of Intelligent Design Creationism and Its Critics (2001). Much of his work on the Evolution-ID debate is available here.
This story in the York (PA) Dispatch mentions Pennock's appearance, and also gives an outline of the what's expected during the trial's first week.
