ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the myth of intelligent design (ID) as a scientific theory. It is noted that most insidous movement promotes ID as an alternative scientific theory to evolution by natural selection. Survey reveals that incidents of school curricula are altered to include ID alarmed Italy and Germany. This trend is widespread in Europe, calling upon member states to oppose teaching of creationism as a scientific discipline. ID's core is considered as the notion of irreducible complexity.
