Prominent scientists take strong stand against the teaching of creationism in science courses

September 19, 2011 | By | Reply More

Here is the statement signed by David Attenborough, Richard Dawkins, Robin Dunbar and numerous other scientists who oppose the teaching of creationism and intelligent design in U.K. schools:

Creationism and ‘intelligent design’ are not scientific theories, but they are portrayed as scientific theories by some religious fundamentalists who attempt to have their views promoted in publicly-funded schools. There should be enforceable statutory guidance that they may not be presented as scientific theories in any publicly-funded school of whatever type.
