Alastair Noble is the director of the Centre for Intelligent Design in Glasgow.[1]

Calls for ID in schools[edit]

In December 2009 he caused controversy by suggesting that Intelligent Design should be taught in British schools.[2] This was in response to the government deciding to place evolution on the National Curriculum at an earlier age, something that was petitioned for by the British Humanist Association. Noble specifically accused educators of teaching "materialist philosophy" if they didn't teach a pseudoscience such as ID alongside established science like natural selection. The arguments put forward were the usual creationist dribble; that evolution doesn't explain the origin of life, that complexity can't evolve and so on.
