Current attempts to introduce 'scientific creationism' into the science classroom are strongly opposed by the Iowa Academy of Science on the grounds that creationism when called 'scientific' is a religious doctrine posed as science. It is contrary to the nature of science to propose supernatural explanations of natural events or their origins. With its appeal to the supernatural, creationism is outside the realm of science.
