Minister of State for Science - to launch anti-science book!
Just when you think that Fianna Fail can't surprise you any more, this happens:
Darwinism?The Origin of Specious Nonsense Book|EVOLUTION IS A HOAX|Irish Author John J May
Someone from Atheism Ireland rang the author and, yes, Conor Lenihan, Minister of State for Science, Technology and Kebabs, is launching a book that claims that evolution is a hoax.
I just rang Lenihan's constituency office and yes, it was confirmed that this is absolutely true. The person who answered claimed that merely because a Minister for Science is launching - and therefore giving credence to - a book that attacks science, it shouldn't be taken that Lenihan agrees with the book!
If that ain't a HUGE big "Fcuk-you" to every science teacher and scientist in Ireland - whom he's supposed to be representing - I don't know what is!
Pure crazy, given the office he currently holds.
