David Coppedge, who worked for 15 years on a mission to explore Saturn and its moons, is suing the space agency for religious discrimination.
Adherents of intelligent design say that a higher power must have had a hand in creation because life is too complex to have developed through evolution alone.
Mr Coppedge was a “team leader” on the Cassini project at the agency’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. He used to talk to his co-workers about the theory and handed out DVDs on it while at work.
He claims that led to him being demoted in 2009 and the termination of his employment as a computer specialist last year.
His case, which is being heard in a Los Angeles court, is being backed by a Christian civil rights group and the Discovery Institute, a proponent of intelligent design.
