Intelligent Design Group Urges California High School to Change Course or Remove Intelligent Design

*Intelligent Design Group Urges California High School to Change Course or Remove Intelligent Design*
In the letter a Discovery Institute attorney writes: “The title and nature of this course are problematic and appear to misrepresent the content of the course and intelligent design.” The letter later urges the district to: “either reformulate the course by removing the young earth creationist materials or retitle the course as a course not focused on intelligent design.”

KU Darwinists Duck Intelligent Design Debate

I wonder if Krishtalka could at least take the time to show that intelligent design is a religion-based argument. Let’s set the bar really low for his opening statement. Find a passage anywhere in Dembski’s Cambridge University Press monograph, The Design Inference, or in his follow-up academic book on the subject, No Free Lunch , that bases one of its arguments on a religious premise, that is, appeals to religious authority.

In Ohio Darwinist Admits Plan to Burn Evolution Critics

*In Ohio Darwinist Admits Plan to Burn Evolution Critics *
This reveals the mindset of so many Darwinists: they are not tolerant of those who dissent from their views.

So much for academic freedom and collegiality. If there were any doubts about Darwinist dogmatism, this lays them to rest.

Dogmatic Darwinists Strike Again: Americans United for the Separation of Students and Science

*Dogmatic Darwinists Strike Again: Americans United for the Separation of Students and Science*
We thought the Darwinists were willing to see non-evolutionary ideas considered in non-science courses. Turns out they were lying. Rev. Barry Lynn, who leads Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, apparently doesn’t want ID even in a philosophy course, because it’s too dangerous for young minds to learn about regardless of the venue.

Discovery Institute Chides Ohio Activists for Trying to Dumb Down Evolution Education and Censor Science

*Discovery Institute Chides Ohio Activists for Trying to Dumb Down Evolution Education and Censor Science*
“Ohio critics of intelligent design now want to dumb down the teaching of evolution by censoring out scientific evidence challenging Darwinism and that is bad for students and bad for science education,” said Casey Luskin, program officer for public policy and legal affairs with Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture. “A lot of evidence surrounding evolution isn’t typically covered in biology courses. Students need to learn more about evolution, not less.”
