Creationists and anti-evolutionists in the United Kingdom have established a new website, called 'Truth in Science', to try to persuade school parents to lobby for their ideas within the British education system.
The move is the latest attempt by opponents of Darwinian theory to 'teach the controversy' by claiming equivalence for non-scientific theories of origins often derived from fundamentalist interpretations of Christian scripture.
Truth in Science asks, "Are you aware of what your child is being taught, and have you ever discussed this with his or her science teacher?" It says that a 'free resource pack' is being sent to school heads of science in September 2006. [Evolution, Intelligent Design, ID, Creationism, UK]
