Remember Genesis id the basis of not one but three religions and when it came to the written word, it was done at a time when the Christian church was fighting for political/geographical and montery power. The same church which is, of course, run by the most fallable of creatures......man!

The hierarchy of the catholic church published a teaching document in 2005instructing the faithful that some parts of the Bible are not actually true. The catholic bishops of England, Wales and Scotland informed folowers, as well as any others drawn to the study of the bible, that they should not expect “total accuracy” from the book.

So I'm quite happy with my standing with the big man, and if I'm wrong (and you're right!), I'll find out sure enough
I wasn't talking about the Catholics Churches view on Christianity, but the Bible's.

I can accept your point of view of Christianity, Owen even though I dont understand it as I was raised with a different view to believe God's Word, but its your perogative to believe whatever you want to.

I find the teaching of creationism to such young children very disturbing, particularly when presented like this. But it is a free society and I agree with the curator and hats off to him. I should say I am a geologist and on global scale I believe there are only one or two creationist geologists, it basically goes against all of geology.

Only asking a question...I would have hoped for a little more respect seeing as he doesn't know my situation and didn't apply any thought to the fact that it was very late here - and also an explanation of his attack - if it was just for a couple of spelling errors...er I would like to see him do three things at once...not just attack...

Scary, eh? Tyrannasaurus Rex the vegetarian till that bad woman Eve ate that meat apple!
This is why we hear the expression 'blind faith'
I'm speechless.
Talk about brainwashing. From this population came Waco... Does anyone watch the UK show 'Waterloo Road' (on BBC Canada). There were a couple of episodes where a Creationist was going to fund the construction of a new academy for the inner city school that is WR. He did some of that brainwashing with some of the children more susceptible to being influenced - it was a pretty good storyline (of course, Brits being Brits they decided not to take the money if it meant brainwashing and ousted the American with the dosh). If you haven't seen it and have BBC Canada I believe the storyline will be coming up soon. They're just reshowing that season (on a Monday I believe).

HAven't seen it BUT reg Vardy man funds at least one school, something to to with emmanuel in sunderland and it does have creastionist leanings , in as much as it could in Britian. I think they do teach what is called intelligent design alongside creationism, (from what I have read).
