Academic Freedom

See the menu item ACADEMIC FREEDOM. To quote from the lead in to the page: ".... However, there is another key issue raised by ID.  It is the freedom of academics and science educators to explore and discuss the issues associated with ID.  The exploration of ID within science should not be dismissed as something it is not – a disguised religious position."

‘Design in Nature’ theme proves a big draw at Cambridge conference PDF Print Email

‘Probably the biggest one-day philosophy conference in the UK this year’ was how Dr Daniel Hill of the University of Liverpool described a recent seminar on design in the natural world.

Saturday 14 July saw over 90 delegates, including a Nobel Laureate, cram into the Pavilion Room at Hughes Hall, Cambridge, for Tyndale Philosophy's `Design in Nature? Perspectives from Science and Philosophy' conference.

Eugenie Scott says there’s No Contrary Evidence about Evolution and Global Warming PDF Print Email

I attended the Glasgow Skeptics meeting on 15th September 2011 at which Dr Eugenie Scott, the USA based Executive Director of the National Center for Science Education, spoke on ‘Evolution and Global Warming Denial – How the Public is Misled’.  Dr Scott’s organisation is committed to ‘Defending the Teaching of Evolution in Public Schools’ and ‘keeping creationism out’, in order to promote good science education.

The evening was a vast improvement over the previous rabble which was the P Z Meyers presentation.  Dr Scott is altogether a more civilised individual who advocates respectful debate.  She advocated that opposing views should be discussed, not derided – a comment which was timely after the obligatory jeer when I raised a question about Intelligent Design (ID).
