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."--Jacket+-+279206046521ocn221477911book19940.47Simmons, SSubstance use & misuse : the prevalence and impact of substance usage and abuse on Aboriginal community members21ocn063212157visu20050.92Teaching intelligent designConference proceedings"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 catalog11ocn808245897visu2006A war on scienceThe 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 country11ocn076836514visu20060.47President's forum on intelligent design science, religion, and the question of cosmic purposeVideo of a public lecture, "Science, religion, and the question of cosmic purpose," by John F.
