Philosophical Beliefs: Darwinism and Anthropogenic Global Warmimg

Grainger v Nicholson is discussed in an employment law blog where they provide a link (word doc) to the court case.

As has been well reported, man-made global warming, in law, can be regarded as a philosophical belief (subject to factual tests) for the purposes of Article 9 of the ECHR.

Curiously, according Burton J, "Darwinism must plainly be capable of being a philosophical belief, albeit that it may be based entirely on scientific conclusions (not all of which may be uncontroversial)."

I make no particular points in this post ... the judgment is simply of interest.
