Creationism's Trojan horse : the wedge of intelligent design by Barbara Forrest ( Book )
29 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 2,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Creationism's Trojan Horse, Forrest and Gross document the agenda and advances of "Intelligent Design," the most recent manifestation of American science education's perennial affliction: creationism. Explaining and analyzing what "design theorists" call their "Wedge Strategy" - an attempt to substitute "theistic science" for natural science in the public mind - this book documents the Wedge's aggressive, decade-long public relations campaign to implement the strategy. The most notable feature of its purportedly new scientific paradigm is the failure of its creators to produce either a scientific research program or any original scientific data to support their claims. Instead, the design movement maintains a crowded schedule of popular publications for its mostly conservative Christian constituency, lectures, and media appearances - sustained by lucrative funding from religious benefactors. The Wedge has intruded itself successfully into educational politics at the local, state, and now national levels."--BOOK JACKET
Teaching intelligent design ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"At a day-long conference on science, religion and intelligent design, panelists talked about teaching the theory of intelligent design in classrooms. Among the topics they addressed were the adequacy of existing science curricula, social agendas of both the science and religious communities, and the scientific value of the theories of evolution and creationism"--Publisher's catalog
A war on science ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The theory of evolution is under attack by the increasing number of believers in Intelligent Design. Can science be replaced by God? This documentary gives both sides of the argument and includes accounts from key players in both fields. Although we take the authoritative presence of science as a given in the 21st century, even recently it has been debated in some US schools as to whether or not the theory of evolution should be taught. But if we welcome a supernatural element to the theory of evolution what impact will this have on the progression of a purely scientific understanding of evolution? In the US, The Discovery Institute, current home base for the Intelligent Design movement, is gaining power and has a master plan (backed by George W. Bush) to alter thinking about our origins across the entire country
