Yet, most ID advocates do not specify belief in a certain religion or religion per se. Many ID activists purport the belief in any form of supernatural force or deity and not necessarily God. However, the words creationism and intelligent design have been used interchangeably and various media outlets have called the ruling "a blow to Christian conservatives."

Several question marks arise in this discussion, such as, is intelligent design really another form of creationism? Should evolution continue to be taught in 'modern world' schools unchallenged? Do students have the right to decide for themselves what to believe ?
