On Saturday, The National (an Australian paper) published an otherwise dull piece, Creationism Gains Ground in Europe. But I enjoyed the concluding paragraph...
Prof Reiss was forced to resign as education director of the UK’s Royal Society, the country’s leading science body, after he suggested that creationism should be discussed in science lessons, if only to prove it had no scientific basis.
Let me get this straight: Prof. Reiss - a high-ranking national official - was forced to resign merely because he "suggested that creationism should be discussed in science lessons, if only to prove it had no scientific basis?"
Gosh, those Darwinists are a bit touchy, wouldn't you say?!
Actually, maybe we should start a new TV character: "Terry the Touchy Darwinist."
Terry can be a can be a guy who makes fun of "Creationists" at P.Z. Myers' website all day, spouts "evolution is a fact" to his co-workers until he's red in the face, and then joins up with other Darwinists to cause a ruckus whenever a public figure (Prof. Reiss, Robert Wright, Sarah Palin, whoever) strays from the Party line.
