describing intelligent design as a scientific theory[edit]

Come on people, intelligent design is not a scientific theory. It has been rejected wholesale by the scientific community and whether or not it is a scientific theory has also been decided in one federal court case. Mr Christopher 20:20, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Does the article call it a scientific theory? I'm not sure I understand what your complaint is.Jsrduck 20:45, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

A few months ago someone had edited it to portray ID as a scientific theory. That's what I was referring to (back in October). Mr Christopher 21:52, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

As of November 26, some clown had replaced "hub of the Intelligent Design movement" in reference to the DI with "hub of the Bullshit." As this is obviously pejorative, it has been changed, and the person editing it should be encouraged take Wikipedia policy seriously. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jps0869 (talkcontribs) 05:30, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Public School Education?[edit]

The article states that the Discovery Institute is involved in a variety of activities, including public school education. Do we have any evidence of this? The only public school education activities I am aware of all have to do with Intelligent Design via the teach the controversy campaign and such stemming from the wedge strategy. This has nothing to do with public education and everything to do with promoting Intelligent Design. Unless there is some evidence that they do in fact have some sort of public school education component (that is not ID related) I think we should remove "including public school education" from the article. Other than encouraging school districts to inject creationism into our public science classes and also miseleading them on biology/evolution subjects, what has the DI done for public school education? Mr Christopher 14:19, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

I got this from their website (on the "other programs link)

Education Discovery's education program produces articles and occasional studies of school choice, the growth in home schooling and how we can better educate students at all levels. The program holds periodic public events annually to explore these subjects.

The program includes Discovery Senior Fellow Patricia Lines

The Education header was not a link (all the others linked to their own page of details) and the Patricia Lines name was linked to a blank page. I'm removing the entry that suggests the DI is involved in public school education. If anyone can provide any evidence that such a program actually exists and is noteworthy then we can add that back.

Is the Discovery Institute really a "Christian" organization? Does it answer to any Christian associations? Does it promote Christian theology/philosophy? The Discovery Institute may be popular with Christians, and it's members may even be overwhelmingly Christian, but I don't see any evidence that the organization itself is a "Christian organization" as described here.Jsrduck 00:01, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

If you have an issue with this I suggest you take it up on the main page of the Discovery Institute. JoshuaZ 00:50, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
The main page for Discovery Institute doesn't describe it that way. Hence my comment. Also, I'm not sure it's really a "conservative think-tank." Again, that is not how it is described in the main article. Jsrduck 09:54, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Nobody has responded. I'm going to change the intro to match the article on the Discovery Institute. Jsrduck 19:40, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
Somebody at IP keeps changing "American Conservative think tank" to "Christian think tank." We changed this because it is untrue., please respond on the discussion board before making this change!Jsrduck 00:29, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
