Creationism in British schools
For once, an evolutionary biologist and a creationist agree on something.

It’s difficult to understand how this can happen, but it seems that we need to be vigilant. So far, we haven’t come across creationism in Suffolk schools, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any. In Kansas, they’ve fought creationism and the teaching of ‘intelligent design’ with ridicule. ‘Concerned citizen’ Bobby Henderson has established the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
