The Discovery Institute (DI) is a politically conservative[1][2][3] non-profit think tank based in Seattle, Washington, that advocates the pseudoscientific concept[4][5][6] of intelligent design (ID). It was founded in 1990 as a non-profit offshoot of the Hudson Institute. Its "Teach the Controversy" campaign aims to permit the teaching of anti-evolution, intelligent-design beliefs in United States public high school science courses in place of accepted scientific theories, positing that a scientific controversy exists over these subjects when in fact there is none.[7][8][9][10][11][12][13]
