There's a surprise.
|The lobby group says its ultimate aim is to pressure schools to teach ID in science lessons as a challenge to Darwinism. It says it has the support of about 70 heads of science across Britain, who want ID to be introduced in the national curriculum as part of science.|
At least they don't pussyfoot around. I particularly enjoy the "pressure" statement. We know that everyone thinks this is crap, but we're going to apply some pressure, not persuasion with evidence, I say, but PRESSURE!
Also, anyone have any idea who these 70 IDiots are?
|Canon Jeremy Davies, Precentor of Salisbury cathedral, said: “I don’t see why religious education should be a dumping ground for fantasies. If it is claimed that this is a scientific theory, why isn’t it explored in science classes? Its validity or otherwise should be tested against the usual criteria.”|
A topic I'd like to ask the DI about. If the IDiots can't even get the church to take them seriously, what have they got?
But I get the trick question- there isn't any such thing as one molecule of water. -JoeG
And scientists rarely test theories. -Gary Gaulin
