Creation vs. Evolution.

Today's WTF, courtesy of ... The Netherlands!

EMMEN - All Dutch people will receive a brochure in the mail at the end of february, that wants to put the evolution theory up for discussion. Conservative Christian organisations that believe that God created the world in six days are responsible for the text. 6.6 million copies of the brochure will be printed over the next month. The coördinator of the campaign, also chairman of the Bible & Education Society says that the evolution theory is a faith and just as impossible to prove as the Creation theory.

Followers of the evolution theory have already designed a mailbox sticker that will hopefully prevent them from getting the brochure in the mail. The first batch of the sticker with the text "YES evolution, NO creation" has already sold out. Christian organisations are working on their own sticker with the exact opposite text.

A total of 30 organisations support the Creational Action Committee that was founded for the campaign. They will finance the event that will cost around 250.000 Euro (US$ 320.000). "Our goal is to put a discussion in motion. On many schools the evolution theory is seen as absolute truth. There may be some attention to Creation but teachers say that the theory isn't true. Plus there's no questions on Creation in any exam. We believe that children have a right to hear both sides."

P.S. For the record, I attended two different high schools, one a private Christian school that only taught Creationism, and the other a public school that only taught evolution, and I never felt that either approach was fair, so I much prefer the "equal exposure" way they do it here.
