Creationism in York It seems that the small town of York, PA is having a little dust-up about teaching creationism. Pharyngula has the goods here. I have nothing to add to his excellent comments. The following thought pretty much sums up everything:

I don't want to sound like I'm doing nothing but making fun of the rubes in central Pennsylvania, but my point is that these arguments for creationism are all patently false. It's not a matter of me being prejudiced against Bible believers, or having subtle, arcane knowledge beyond the ken of mere yokels; these are trivially erroneous arguments. They are stupidly wrong. And that is a shame.
