The Origins of Nonsense

Creationism: That (Not So) Old Time Religion

Interesting article here delving into the history of the creationist, fundamentalist christian movement. I don't have much to add to the author's comments, but it's fun to get a little behind the scenes timeline on the movement to get creationism or intelligent design, as it's now called, taught in the classrooms. Luckily it has failed as miserably as it did for William Jennings Bryan with the Scopes Trial back in the 1920's. The book of Genesis and the fundamentals of science can not be reconciled.

"In place of science or insightful theology, creationism's primary achievement is a waist-deep rubbish pile of misrepresentation and deceit."
