The curricula of ID creationism and the older scientific creationism are remarkably alike.
The AAAS, AIBS, Association of Southeastern Biologists (sponsor of the symposium), the American Chemical Society, the American Physical Society, the National Academy of Sciences, the Georgia Academy of Science, along with many other professional societies, have gone on record opposing the older "scientific creationism" and the current ID creationism.
Addressing the scientific mistakes of ID creationism requires attention to current science about intelligence, complexity, and information; it must be a collaborative effort between biologists, physicists, computer scientists and others.
