Creationism dangerous in education: Council of Europe resolution
Friday, October 12, 2007
|If we are not careful, creationism could become a threat to human rights ...|
—CoE Resolution 1580 (2007), art 2
The Council of Europe Parliamentary assembly (CoE) urged its member states to only teach creationism as nothing more than belief. The CoE stressed the potential threat to human rights that may result from creationist doctrines.
The adopted resolution targeting creationism is a reaction to growing fear in the CoE member states that progressive scientific thought is threatened by the advancement of fundamentalism and its perceived dangers. The British government marginalized intelligent design into 'religious' belief even before the adoption of the CoE resolution.
