Creationists, ID, Muslims and England

America is not the only country that is facing the rising tide of creationist theory. England is also experiencing a flood of evangelical fundamentalists and Muslim students in sixth-form colleges (kinda’ like community colleges in the States) and universities who are trying to replace Darwin’s theory (fact) with their theory (not fact) that the earth is just 6,000 years old.

“A growing number of science students on British campuses and in sixth form colleges are challenging the theory of evolution and arguing that Darwin was wrong. Some are being failed in university exams because they quote sayings from the Bible or Qur’an as scientific fact and at one sixth form College in London most biology students are now thought to be creationists.”

“Earlier this month Muslim medical students in London distributed leaflets that dismissed Darwin’s theories as false. Evangelical Christian students are also increasingly vocal in challenging the notion of evolution.”

“There is an insidious and growing problem,” said Professor Jones, of University College London. “It’s a step back from rationality. They (the creationists) don’t have a problem with science; they have a problem with argument. And irrationality is a very infectious disease as we see from the United States.”

People from the US are apparently helping those across the pond in setting up organizations using methods and systems tested in America. Answers in Genesis have a British office and they are busy spreading the gospel of “Biblical Inerrancy” to all who would listen. Most of the kids who are questioning their teachers about Darwin’s “theory” (fact) are from homes that are following the lead of American sects such as Pentecostals and Baptists.

And then of course there are the Muslims, and they are a very strong presence in England. The Muslims are smack-dab in the middle when it comes to fundamentalist religious thought. Their Koran is different in many (most) ways than the Bible, but on matters of creation they pretty much sing the same song, and their young students in English schools are making big waves by denouncing Darwin and England’s mostly secular teaching and ways.

The evangelical fundamentalists of religion are trying every diabolical, backhanded, cunning, and fiendish tricks they can to try and teach religion-as-science in schools, and of course their final goal would be to kick science out of school altogether.  You see they want “their” religion to rule everyone and everything…and of course the Muslims want the same thing…going to be an interesting war.

  1. From ‘The Guardian’ article:

    ‘Our education system should provide access to the knowledge and understanding gained through the scientific method of experiment and observation, such as the theory of evolution through natural selection, and should withstand attempts to withhold or misrepresent this knowledge in order to promote particular beliefs, religious or otherwise.”‘

    I’m inclined to similar belief as this person stated so in that vein (withstand attempts to withhold OR misrepresent this knowledge) would you please be so kind as to explain in your own words and not those copied from others exactly why you place the word ‘fact’ in brackets behind the THEORY of Evolution ( through natural selection) in several places on your website including this post?

    You do understand the difference between a scientific theory based on various pieces of coherent and complimentary evidence (facts) and a fact itself – don’t you?

    Thank you 🙂

    Hi lovewillbringustogether, thank you for writing.

    Yes I know what the scientific use of “theory” is. So far the evidence for evolution is overwhelming and only gets stronger as the years go by.

    Given that fact I think the “Theory”of evolution should be called the “Fact” of evolution, so I was just making fun with what I was writing.

    I totally agree with the first paragraph that you sent me. As the article I quoted from stated though there are evangelical Christians and Muslims who want to pervert the scientific system and insert religion into science classrooms in public schools…This would be a travesty because religion relies on magic…not science. Also science disproves religion.
