The theory of evolution is being attacked by religious fundamentalists who call for creationist theories to be taught in European schools alongside or even in place of it. From a scientific view point there is absolutely no doubt that evolution is a central theory for our understanding of the Universe and of life on Earth.
Creationism in any of its forms, such as “intelligent design”, is not based on facts, does not use any scientific reasoning and its contents are pathetically inadequate for science classes.
The Assembly calls on education authorities in member States to promote scientific knowledge and the teaching of evolution and to oppose firmly any attempts at teaching creationism as a scientific discipline.
Heh. Das wird einigen nicht gefallen. Z. B. Dembski dazu:
The Council of Europe may justly be renamed as “The European Council for the Advancement of Atheism.”Da ist sie wieder am Werk, die Evil Atheist Conspiracy.
