I swear - you couldn't make this schite up!

Credit due to Oceanclub who drew our attention to the following in the politics section.

Minister of State for Science - to launch anti-science book!

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!
See: http://www.atheist.ie/2010/09/scienc...lution-a-hoax/

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.

If evolution is a hoax, its a fairly elabourate one.

People that believe the earth is 3000 years old and that we were created as man are Braindead.

Evolution is only a theory, but its one of the most bullet proof theories there are.

You're most likely preaching to the converted.

Don't even think there are many theists on Boards that argue against evolution.

But if there are bring them on (with or without their tennis balls )

It's the next step in the FF inspired / controlled evolution of the Irish state.

What an absoloute laughing stock of a country, is the whole thing one big hidden camera show?? If Jeremy Beadle wasn't dead I'd be half expecting him to pop out and laugh at us all.

Ah well, at least he won't have to pay tax on his book earnings (assuming some clowns actually buy it).

Fianna Fail - regress your intelligence 50 years, vote now!
