Why this website?

The views of science on our universe are dramatically changing, with profound impact on our ways of thinking and living.

Whenever there is rapid change, there are three kinds of people involved:
  1. Those who make it happen.
  2. Those who watch it happen.
  3. Those who wondered what happened.
This is also true for the sciences, unfortunately with an enormous time-lapse between 1, 2 and 3, covering several generations. The impact in education is typically felt at the tail-end, when the news finally trickles down to the school books and a new generation of educators has been trained.

As a consequence, our youngsters and society are risking to miss out on many positive life changing opportunities.

At stake is nothing less than the struggle about mind. 

The need for it was triggered by a publication of the Council of Europe called 'The dangers of creationism in education'.
The motives are noble, yet the consequences spell disaster.

This site offers constructive alternatives and hopes to contribute to a brighter future for our youngsters.
 
You do not have to wait, resources are here, at your disposal, for free.

Enjoy your visit,

A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.
