From BBC News UK: “‘Intelligent Design’ attack on UK school science
“Parents are being encouraged to challenge their children’s science teachers over what they are explaining as the origins of life.
An organisation called Truth in Science has also sent resource packs to all UK secondary school science departments.
It promotes the idea of intelligent design – that there was an intelligence behind the creation of the universe.
Humanists (1) and a Christian think tank (2) want the government to tell teachers to keep ‘a wholly scientific perspective’.
The Department for Education and Skills (DfES) in England has said it does not endorse the resources sent out by Truth in Science.
It said the fossil record was evidence for evolution.
