This is a rising voice of those who for the last ten years have sat in the educational system  as it has been for the last 50 years. The fear what now is going to happen with the students now come to their collages spouting Intelligent Design. 

When I was in High School openly debated my teachers in class and in private on this issue. And I found that they were not at all prepared to openly debate what they taught. And at the time I was easily able to “blown out of the water” And they actually ceased teaching on the subject for the duration of the time I was in their classes.

In private I had the greatest success in questioning by asking them questions and forcing them to explain what they believed what came from what and the proofs and everything came undone.    

Bible-quoting science students on rise (USA spreads 'infectious diesease to UK)

A GROWING number of science students on British university campuses are challenging the theory of evolution, saying that Darwin was wrong.

Some are being failed in university exams because they quote sayings from the Bible or Koran as scientific fact and at one college in London, most biology students are now thought to be creationists.

Earlier this month, Muslim medical students in London distributed leaflets that dismissed Darwin's theories as false. Evangelical Christian students are also increasingly vocal in challenging the notion of evolution.

In the US, there is growing pressure to teach creationism or "intelligent design" in science classes, despite legal rulings against it. Similar trends in Britain have prompted the Royal Society, Britain's leading scientific academy, to confront the issue head-on with a talk next month entitled "Why Creationism is wrong", when the award-winning geneticist and author Steve Jones will deliver the lecture and challenge creationists, Christian and Islamic, to argue their case rationally.

"There (Bible believing students) is an insidious and growing problem," said Professor Jones, of University College London.  (Bible believing students are)"It's a step back from rationality. They [the creationists] don't have a problem with science, they have a problem with argument. And (they are) irrationality (Bible believing students are) is a very infectious disease, as we see from the US."

Leaflets that question Darwinism were circulated among students at the Guys Hospital site of King's College London this month as part of the Islam Awareness Week, organised by the college's Islamic Society. One member of staff at Guys said that he found it deeply worrying that Darwin was being dismissed by people who would soon be practising as doctors.  And what does that have to do with viruses broken bones and surgery and prescribing medicine?

The leaflets are produced by the Al-Nasr Trust, a charity based in Slough, west of London, set up in 1992 with the aim of improving the understanding of Islam.

The passage quoted from the Koran says: "And God has created every animal from water. Of them there are some that creep on their bellies, some that walk on two legs and some that walk on four. God creates what he wills for verily God has power over all things."

A 21-year-old medical student and member of the Islamic Society, who asked not to be named, said the Koran was clear that man had been created and had not evolved as Darwin says. "There is no scientific evidence for it [Darwin's Origin of Species]. It's only a theory. Man is the wonder of God's creation."

Below the Muslim student states here that while he in no way believes a word of evolution – that he will lie, (cheat and steal) in order to get good grades – which are all allowed in the Koran – in regards to their interaction with  “infidels.

He did not feel that a belief in evolution was necessary to study medicine, although he added that, if writing about it was necessary for passing an exam, he would do so.

At another London campus, some students have been failed because they have presented creationism as fact. They have been told by their examiners that, while they are entitled to explain both sides of the debate, they cannot present the Bible or Koran as scientifically factual if they want to pass exams. David Rosevear, of the Britain-based Creation Science Movement, which supports the idea of creationism, said that there was an increasing interest in the subject among students.
They have been told that they must kiss the feet of the Idol of science and do homage if they are to pass and receive their coveted degrees.

"I've got no problem with an all-powerful God producing everything in six days," he said, calling it an early example of the six-day week. Most of the next generation of medical and science students could be creationists, according to a biology teacher at a leading London college. "The vast majority of my students now believe in creationism," she said, "and these are thinking young people who are able and articulate and not at the dim end at all."
