About IDEA Center

Purpose and Mission

miscThe mission of the IDEA Center is:
  • To promote, as a scientific theory, the idea that life was designed by an intelligence;
  • To educate people about scientific problems with purely natural explanations for the origins and evolution of life;
  • To challenge the philosophical assumptions of Darwinism, naturalism, and materialism;
  • To support academic freedom for legitimate intellectual viewpoints in academia and the culture as a whole;
  • To facilitate discussion, debate, and dialogue concerning these issues in a warm, friendly, and open atmosphere where individuals feel free to speak their personal views;
  • To help students on university and high school campuses, and others, to start IDEA Clubs to fulfill this mission.
