Committee on Culture, Science and Education
Rapporteur: Mr Guy LENGAGNE, France, Socialist Group
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 Ã¢â‚¬Å“intelligent designÃ¢â‚¬Â, 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.
Incredible. I hardly know where to start criticizing this huge load of rubbish. I’ll let y’all pick it apart in the comments.
