More Creationism foolishness

Well, Dobson and his crew are trying an intensive small group indoctrination class call "The Truth Project." I'm sure it's old news to some, but I've just run across it. And it's chock full of the stupidity I expect from them.
From the overview section:

Lesson 5 - Science: What is True?

Science, the "systematic study of the natural world," brings to light innumerable evidences of Intelligent Design. But Darwinian theory transforms science from the honest investigation of nature into a vehicle for propagating a godless philosophy. (Part One)

A careful examination of molecular biology and the fossil record demonstrates that evolution is not a "proven fact." Meanwhile, history shows that ideas, including Darwinism as a social philosophy, have definite consequences – consequences that can turn ugly when God is left out of the picture. (Part Two)

So, we have an immediate attack on evolution, an outright lie("A careful examination...") and the fallacy of an appeal to consequences all within the overview. It doesn't bode well for the actual program. I imagine that they are trying to brainwash young adults with this crap primarily.
It's too bad that these people won't actually be presented with actual biology, or the readily found answers to their weak arguments and objections. I'm going to try to get a copy of this drek for a review.
