If educators reject creationism, it's only proof that there's an international atheistic Satanic communist Darwinist conspiracy against creationism. Of course, any time anywhere someone wants to put creationism IN, that's different.

Evangelical Anglican vicar and geologist Michael Roberts told Ekklesia: John Mackay and other creationists, who believe that the earth is only 6 to 10 thousand years old and that the fossils were laid down in the twelve months of Noahs flood are utterly wrong.
Having made a careful study of creationist texts, he says: I soon found that they were wrong on three counts. First, they misunderstood standard geology. Second, their proposed alternative that all fossil-rich strata were laid down in the Flood results in absurdity. Thirdly, and most serious, was the frequent and systematic misquotation and misrepresentation of standard scientific sources.

Evolutionist: "Why, sometimes I've seen new evidence explaining as many as six formerly unexplained things before breakfast."
Creationist: "Bah! I will never believe those six recently explained things, and besides, Darwin, Hitler and Stalin ate breakfast."

Concerns had been raised that the inclusion of creationism in the specification might operate as a Trojan horse for those who wished to smuggle it and its cousin, so-called Intelligent Design (ID), into their science teaching.
Of course it would.
That's the way creationism spreads in science education - by disguising its true goals. Deception is the only way it can spread.

(Identical fecal matter, alternate diurnal period)
Vatican astronomer Guy J. Consolmagno, a Jesuit priest who has pioneered the field of gravitoelectrodynamics, recently described creationism as an unfounded superstition which undermines both legitimate science and theological understanding.
So a Vatican official is on record denying the divinity of scripture?

Yeah! Britian is for intellect and science!
The 'Gateway Science' specification had caused controversy because teachers were asked to explain that the fossil record has been interpreted differently over time (e.g. creationist interpretation).
Its been interpreted not to exist, or to be just "funny-shaped" rocks?
