Audio: The Discovery Institute Collaborates with Turkish Creationists
Last year CBC radio had a segment devoted to Islamic creationism in Turkey, with some amazing revelations:
* The Institute for Creation Research has been heavily involved with Turkish creationists for years, supplying propaganda and teaching materials and DVDs, to the point where Turkey’s school system has purged the teaching of evolution in favor of creationist pseudo-science.
* The Discovery Institute is also “working closely with their Turkish counterparts,” and the DI’s David Berlinski (CBC mistakenly calls him “Paul”) explicitly says that Islamic creationists are allies of US creationists.
Here’s an audio clip of the relevant segments, featuring David Berlinski praising the radical Islamic creationist movement.
The clip ends on a note that ought to frighten anyone who values the teaching of science. This is a glimpse of what the Discovery Institute is working towards in the United States.
The full show is available on this page.
