In a 48 to 25 vote, the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly passed a resolution entitled, “The dangers of creationism in education.” Its purpose is to affirm the exclusive teaching of evolution and to keep biblical creation and intelligent design out of science classes in its 47 member countries. Here are some of the statements from the resolution:
Though this resolution is nonbinding, it still may influence decisions made by the member states. The European Union is clearly worried about the growing influence of creation ministries in Europe. Answers in Genesis–UK reports an increased awareness and interest in creation and evolution in the UK and Europe. The ministry attributes this to both the intelligent design movement and opposition from outspoken atheists such as Richard Dawkins. This renewed interest and awareness has drawn the attention of various media and given AiG–UK new opportunities for interviews from both Christian and secular media.
