How life, the universe and everything got here. God? Nature? Both? Chew it over here. This is also the place for discussing any theories or views which run counter to mainstream science.

Discovery Institute and the March for Science

There’s a long list of “Partners” for the march — groups that support the event itself, though they’re not necessarily funding it — including the Secular Student Alliance, American Atheists, Secular Coalition for America, and American Humanist Association. All of them promote science education in some way even if they have a different primary goal.

There’s one particular group, though, that was rejected as a partner: The Discovery Institute. That’s the group known for it’s promotion of Intelligent Design (a.k.a. Creationism without the word “God”). It’s a group that works to dismantle science education by pushing their own evidence-free views into the public sphere.

Shouldn't they be in the March AGAINST Science?
