image for Intelligent Design start a kids club

The Discovery Institute, the For Prophets organisation set up to preach and teach about intelligent design, has decided the time is right for a junior wing to the movement after repeated failures to convince anybody with an IQ above minus fifty that their approach to the world is scientific.

"We've got sufficient backing to replace Sunday Schools with a Science Club," said Michael Behe, one of the originators of the replacement of Creationism with Intelligent Design.

According to Behe, the rules governing science clubs are not as strict as those governing school curricula.

"Anybody can set up a kids club," said Behe. "Except a registered sex offender. And I'm absolutely not one of those."

The Discovery Institute have launched Intelligent Design Kids to promote their Science Club and other events to indoctrinate small children into the creationist world view.

"We encourage questioning minds to join IDK," said Behe. "No matter what their questions, we have the answer. We're going to put the ID in Kids."

On being asked why 'questions' was plural whilst 'answer' was singular Behe got defensive.

"It was a slip of the tongue," insisted Behe. "Obviously questions have answers. Most of the answers are 'God', but they're different answers to different questions."

Leaflets, pamphlets and a new website, www.idk.sci, have been produced full of glossy images and beatific children, happy in their avoidance of hard questions.

Nobody has had the heart to point out that IDK is internet shorthand for "I Don't Know."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
