United Kingdom Says No To Intelligent Design

Recently, the Church of England predicted that Intelligent Design would soon be incorporated into the United Kingdom's curriculum. However, unlike the approach taken in some American states, the UK proposed including the material as history. "While it is not something I would subscribe to, it is a recognition that there are different ways of looking at the evidence. You would get howls of protest from the scientific community ... but you could do it in history of science," quoted Jan Ainsworth, responsible for more than 4600 schools.

However, in response to a national petition, the UK decided that Intelligent Design was equivalent to a religion akin to Creationism and saw no place for it in public education. The petition writes, "These ideas therefore do not constitute science, cannot be considered scientific education and therefore do not belong in the nation's science classrooms."
