creationism...? not, just "divine" art!

How else to characterize wide spread public opinion favourable to Creationism:

Darwin teaching ‘divides opinion’

More than half of adults in a survey of 10 countries thought school science lessons should teach evolutionary theories alongside creationism.

Among those who knew of Darwinism, on average 53% felt other possible perspectives should also be taught.

The figure was 68% in Argentina, in the poll for the British Council, which promotes educational opportunities.

In Great Britain 60% felt this way. In Egypt, 27% said such theories should not be in science lessons at all.

The British Council, the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations, is running a programme of activities under the banner Darwin Now.

And the truly insane factoid is that the sample in Egypt is only 27% for the teaching of Creationism along with Evolution. Is the Western World going mad, sad or just plain bad?

But never fear reasonable folk! As long as Pharyngula (read PZ Myers) lives the dastardly creations and slanders concocted by the likes of Ray Comfort and his current boy toy, Kirk Cameron will be exposed.
