Intelligent Design Added to Primary School in Britain
Creationism gains foothold in schools
THE government has cleared the way for a form of creationism to be taught in BritainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s schools as part of the religious syllabus.
Lord Adonis, an education minister, is to issue guidelines within two months for the teaching of Ã¢â‚¬Å“intelligent designÃ¢â‚¬Â (ID), a theory being promoted by the religious right in America.
Until now the government has not approved the teaching of the controversial theory, which contradicts Darwinian evolutionary theory, the basis of modern biology.
