were supposed to make an appearance until they found out the judge was going to make it about science, and that the locals did not have their hands clean (they had perjured themselves). The Discovery Institute folks fled like cockroaches. Dembski chief among them.
What they were trying to do was introduce "Of Pandas and People" or whatever its new title was as an alternative text. A text which has been discredited. They even showed the "evolution" of the text from scientific creationism to intelligent design.
By the way the true intelligent design scientists like Behe are actually in conflict with the Discovery Institute - a dissonance exists. The folks leading the Discovery Institute do not recognize an old earth or evolution, but they are using Behe to run interference because their explanations (literal biblical) would get them laughed out of most places.
