RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

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.
