Joe Biden - a Darwinist running mate

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Amid all the stories about Barack Obama's choice of Joe Biden as his running mate for the presidential election, here's a bit of information the British press might have missed. It turns out the Delaware Senator has little time for Intelligent Design and creationism, having previously declared “I refuse to believe the majority of people believe this malarkey!”

I found that quote in this Fox News article designed to show why he'll be "easy fodder" for the Republican Party, but I'm sure plenty of people will find straight-talking Biden's words on creationism refreshing.

And I found the Fox article via a handy little site called Creation Tips ("News headlines of interest to Bible-believing Christians"), which also pointed me to a story on how US Catholic group Fidelis believes Obama's selection of pro-choice Catholic Biden "is a slap in the face to Catholic voters".

Also on the Creation Tips news page right now – a story on how the planet Mercury's magnetic field confirms that the Universe is only 6,000 years old, and a story entitled "If homsexuals were born that way, maybe homophobes were too".

Told you it was a handy site.

Quite astonishing stuff!

I've just spent an hour or so reading some other news stories on Creation Tips, and have been left dismayed at the seemingly rational tone of almost all the articles.

It's incredible how apparently educated people feel compelled to peddle this shit and claim that it's 'scientific'?

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Laugh - it's the only option!
