Intelligent Design. Unintelligent Design. Faith Schools. Church Schools. David Irving’s Denial of The Holocaust of European Jewry.

Four out of 10 people in the UK think that religious alternatives to Darwin’s theory of evolution should be taught as science in schools, according to a BBC poll.

The natural history broadcaster Sir David Attenborough said, "Scientists should defend the boundary between science and religion. Science teachers know perfectly well that science is based on evidence and that intelligent design is not based on evidence, in fact, quite the reverse."
Intelligent design (ID) is the notion that some structures within cells are too complicated to have just evolved and must have been placed there by a divine creator. “That is not a scientific statement,” said Sir David.  “If you inject that into science classes you are denying the very intellectual processes that you are supposed to be teaching as part of science.”
When asked what should be taught in science classes:
69% said evolution
44% said creationism.
41% said ID.
When given the option of three explanations of the origin of life :
Only 48% of the 2,112 adults polled by Ipsos Mori between January 5th and 10th opted for evolution without God.
(not a bad figure considering, some may say, who know the average amount of stupidity that we are here, and now, dealing with)
22% chose creationism. The brainwashed priests and teachers have done their job, most do not know it so it is no problem to write about it here, they are comatose, unaware or in a state of denial.
17% chose ID
The Oxford University evolutionist Professor Richard Dawkins dismissed the results as
“of very little interest”.
“If somebody professes disbelief in evolution, it is highly probable that they know nothing about it,” he added.
“These ignorant people would probably welcome enlightenment. It is up to scientists to get out of their labs, from time to time, and enlighten.”
The poll coincides with Horizon : A War on Science, which airs tonight on BBC2. 

Our children must, and should be, protected from religious fundamentalists in schools i.e. the teaching of ‘intelligent design’ in science classes. The same level of ignorance as in ‘intelligent design’ is equivalent to : David Irving’s denial of the Holocaust of European Jewry. More deaths, suffering, sexual bigotry, suppression, cultural hatred and the upholding of ignorance, in our near past, has been caused by the lack of education about the correct teaching of the real and scientific (Darwin’s) ‘Biological Evolution’ in our Schools. 

The proof of the ‘New Age of Superstition’ (Carl Sagan) is highlighted in the appalling figures above. What are our Educators really up too and with our money, or, the charitable funds from the Churches, and Faith Schools? A huge protected pension fund nest egg – as well. Making more and more money, and building better buildings with the conning of totally ignorant or the unconcerned. This, has now, and so very cleverly, migrated to a new generation of parents.

Fundamentalism The Facts. Or Who Are The Fundamentalists?

(Source Kosmin and Latchman and The Economist)

95% of Americans believe in God

86% believe in Heaven

78% believe in life after death

72% in angels

71% believe in Hell

65% believe in the Devil

34% believe that the Bible is inerrant

But Only 40% believe they have had contact with the dead

65% believe in the Devil 

More Cautious Figures From: The National Survey of Religious Identification (NSRI)

20% of the American population – 50 million people – can be called Evangelical Christians – or – Fundamentalists. 

On the positive side, in 2001, American Atheist Society 2001 (figs NSRI) : 30 million Americans have no belief or faith. 

I wonder how these figures compare with some countries in the Middle East – Iran. And, who are the most fundamentalist of the regimes and theocracies.

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting.

Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
