Clearly this is what they mean, well, Burgess and McIntosh anyway:

◾By definition, no apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the scriptural record.



"Evidence does not speak for itself, it must be interpreted. My interpretation is that the evidence for evolution does not exist because that would contradict the scriptural record." Anon.

The huge problem here is the fact that primary teachers don't have to have science qualifications. In fact they rarely do! Therefore they are far more likely to be swayed by this video than any secondary school science teacher. Only a hardened creationist/ID secondary science teacher would buy this crap. Any non scientific primary school teacher could!!!!!!!!!

DfE does need warning. Well spotted.

The narrator of this rubbish is described as a "Voice of God". While this seems to be a technical term among media folk, maybe pun intended?

It's the same Nick Jackson who narrated 'Set in Stone'.

The new chairperson of ASE appears to be Dr Alice Roberts. Nice to have someone who is so knowledgable.

The magazine has an interesting article on primary science. Nothing about content or new evolution stuff, but a lot about the kids learning about scientific thinking. Lots of new stuff beyond the simple 'is it a fair test' they used to do in little school, e.g. looking at long term trends of secondary data.

I've left it at work but I'll send it off to bcse to counter some of the lies about children not being taught to think. Tho might be worth them looking over for obvious 'let ins' for creationist primary school teachers or unscrupulous primary school creationist stalkers.

Yep, cos it's in B'Ham this year we're going from work. Not sure which day yet or which bits to go will have to look thru and see.
