Welcome to Truth in Science

Welcome to Truth in Science, an organisation promoting good science education in the UK.

For many years, much of what has been taught in school science lessons about the origin of the living world has been dogmatic and imbalanced. The theory of Darwinian evolution has been presented as scientifically uncontroversial and the only credible explanation of origins. Nevertheless, you only have to read recent editions of academic and popular science journals to realise that there is a battle raging over this very issue.

NEW FOR SCHOOLS

We are pleased to announce the availability of a shorter educational version of the DVD Set in Stone: Evidence for Earth's Catastrophic Past. It is 45 minutes in length and you can view a trailer of this DVD on YouTube by clicking on the appropriate words to the left of this webpage. Copies of this version of the DVD are available free of charge to schools and home educators, on request, by contacting us at: info@truthinscience.org.uk

We believe that a critical examination of Darwinism and the controversy that surrounds it will enable students to become better scientists. Nevertheless, many schools are reluctant to teach the controversy. This is partly because most popular school textbooks present Darwinism as the only scientific theory of origins and give little coverage to alternative theories, sometimes misrepresenting them.

GCSE Science Specifications in September 2007 gave a fresh opportunity to reconsider what is taught about origins in science lessons. These specifications place an emphasis on students understanding 'How Science Works'. This concept is explained as follows by the Edexcel Examination Board:

How Science Works is primarily about helping students to engage with and challenge the science they meet in everyday life. Students need to adopt a critical, questioning frame of mind, going ‘behind the scenes’ to understand the workings of science and how it impacts on society and their lives.

We consider that it is time for students to be permitted to adopt a more critical approach to Darwinism in science lessons. They should be exposed to the fact that there is a modern controversy over Darwin's theory of evolution and the neo-Darwinian synthesis, and that this has considerable social, spiritual, moral and ethical implications. Truth in Science promotes the critical examination of Darwinism in schools, as an important component of science education.

 
Belief in Creation not 'extremism'

9th August 2014

At Truth in Science we deplore the inclusion by Nicky Morgan the new education secretary, of ‘extremism' with a belief in Creation. To suggest that a religious ethos for a nursery school which included teaching that we are created by God as extremism is to be frank a turning on its head of what most ordinary people believe instinctively. The tiny minority of secular atheists should not determine the agenda of education in our land. We deplore the way the government has brought in effectively a religious agenda of its own by enforcing the indoctrination of atheistic humanism in having evolution taught as the only way of the consideration of origins. To insist that this is done even at Nursery level is a very serious misuse of public funding. To believe that God created the world is both reasonable and has an empirical scientific basis. To believe that matter given enough time (billions of years) will turn into people is scientifically preposterous and based on the religion of atheistic humanism / atheistic naturalism. Our education taxes must not be spent on brainwashing our children that they are no different to animals. The science of both sides of this important debate must be examined in state schools.  Nicky Morgan is correct on one aspect – that one must teach the difference between right and wrong, but has completely missed the point that such teaching is inseparably linked to the debate on origins.

It seems that the evolutionists are convinced that they have found the last word on life, some of us however, doubt that they have the full answer, and so are still searching.
