Is ID Becoming A Global Phenomenon?

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Uncommon Descent)

(NY Times) The result, he said, was the "red state-blue state clash--It's not science versus religion as such--but very much a cultural clash that we've got in America today." Others concurred, saying that the schism was part and parcel of a broader cultural war over contentious issues like abortion, gay rights and gun control.

But the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Ronald Numbers viewed the phenomenon as a growing global issue, saying intelligent design had made significant inroads in Australia, throughout Latin America, in Korea and most surprisingly, Russian and even China, which remains a communist state.

Many critics are wary of allowing intelligent design to be taught alongside of evolution, claiming that ID isn't science (although many Creationists are claiming that evolution isn't science either). Some have even resorted that ID has as much ground as the satirical spaghetti monster, although such assumptions may have to do with their lack of courage to examine the facts, something Australia seems more intent upon doing.

(NY Times) "And it's not just a Christian phenomenon," he added, citing a Turkish education minister who pushed for intelligent design in schools, as well as inroads made within both Judaism and Islam.

Numbers said that at heart, the proponents of intelligent design "want to change the definition of science" to include God, an issue he predicted would end up in the Supreme Court.

"One of the most successful PR campaigns we've seen in recent years," he added, "is intelligent design."

If evolution is truly science, then teachers, as well as students should have no trouble revealing the holes of the ID theory and shutting the mouths of the "religious right" (whether they be Christian, Muslim, or Jewish). But if it is revealed that evolution nothing more than a fairy tale then many atheists (who for some reason can not stand the thought of someone believing in a deity) will have to accept the reality of God's existence or cling towards a philosophy of pseudo-science.

After all, if science has proven evolution to be a fact, then what are they afraid of?
