‘Intelligent Design’ attack on UK school science

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.

  1. “WHO IS THIS ALIEN?” This Higher Power In The Universe.

    “It seems like many individuals in the world want nothing to do with the Creator of the Universe as if He is some sort of kill-joy, some sort of Tyrant, some sort of myth, or some sort of Alien……….This Higher Power in the Universe.”

    There is a book about this Supreme intelligent being titled,
    Who Is This Alien ? This Higher Power in the Universe…This Supreme Intelligence.

    The book’s about Intelligent Design concepts that are based on scientific discoveries. Hence, it is science and logic blending together forever to support the existence of a Supreme intelligent being, somewhere in the heavens. It’s great reading. It’s very informative, very enlightening, including the author’s personal experiences and visitations with this Supreme Intelligent Being.

    The book’s author brings up the subject of evolution. “Concerning evolution, scientists at the Genome project and other scientists have concluded that there is an element of design built into creation that cannot be explained by evolution. No life form, be it a single cell, multiple cells or even evolutionary cells can exist without DNA. Genome scientist and other scientists have concluded that every life form is a product of DNA and the DNA molecule is a product of an intelligent source, a Supreme intelligence.”

    Genome scientist, Professor Francis Crick, and other scientists have come to a conclusion that the DNA molecule originated from some alien source in the heavens, some extra-terrestrial source, not from evolution, according to History channel documentary, “The Universe.”

    Yes, there is an intelligent life form beyond our galaxy, the 3rd Heaven…Many scientists and individuals are searching the heavens for extra-terrestrial beings; believing by faith that something is out there in the heavens. They will be surprised when this Supreme intelligent being reveals its identity to every scientist at the same time from east to west, north to south …including every human being on this planet-yes at the same time……….It will not be a secret.

    Check out this new book, written in layman’s term, titled, “Who is this Alien? It’s all about this Intelligent being, this supreme intelligent being, creator of the DNA Molecule with all of its genetic instructions and intelligence “ to build you- a product of DNA, a product of the Creator.”

    Check it out on Ingram, Amazon, Barnes or

  2. Wow, “Anonymous” and “Compare Iowa Colleges,” two identical responses and they’re both completely and spectacularly wrong. That’s not what evolution is, nor what it’s taught as.

    Now as for ID in schools, what exactly would be taught? There’s no science yet, all there is is “evolution is wrong because…” (It goes without saying that the supposed flaws in evolution theory are demonstrably wrong, but regardless, there’s nothing you could actually TEACH about ID.)

    ID, by the way, isn’t at the theory level yet (even its proponents will admit that it’s not a theory). At best it’s at the “conjecture” stage– not even a hypothesis. So why should it be taught already? Complaints about evolution doesn’t make ID valid.

    From the posts I often see from people bashing evolution it’s clear that they have nothing to worry about: even though evolution is currently being taught, it’s obvious that no one is actually learning it.

  3. Evolution as taught today is a belief that animals have a special sense that allows them to adapt to meet stresses from their environment.Darwin did not recognize that the adaptation must already be present in animal populations before the stressor appears. There is no pressure after a stressor that would push populations to change.Stresses simply cull unsuccessful adaptations from populations. Modifications of DNA allow changes that may or may not be successful.
