Andrew McIntosh (also known as Andy McIntosh) professor of thermodynamics and combustion theory at the University of Leeds.[1]He is also the director of the organisation Truth in Science which promotes creationism and intelligent design.[2]

His research-group has received the outstanding contribution to innovation and technology award at the Times Higher Education awards in London in 2010 for developing a technology based on the defence mechanism of bombardier-beetle..[3]

Creationism[edit]

In a 2007 discussion with Richard Dawkins on BBC Radio Ulster, McIntosh argued that the principles of thermodynamics are not consistent with Darwinian evolution.[4]

In November 2006, the University of Leeds issued a statement distancing itself from creationism, and noted that McIntosh's directorship of Truth in Science is unconnected with his teaching or research.[2]

As an academic institution, the University wishes to distance itself publicly from theories of creationism and so-called intelligent design which cannot be verified by evidence."
