« DUP wants schools in Northern Ireland to teach creationism in science lessons | Main | Shame on Stephen Timms for spouting insulting nonsense »

September 26, 2007



I suppose it shouldn't surprise anyone that the most impoverished area of the UK (so we are lead to believe over here in Canada) is a the staging area for the creationist disease. This seems contrary to the general tendency in most of western Europe. Perhaps if the issue of poverty was dealt with honestly in the direction of a citizens' income or similar measures, THEN the battle against religion could really move forward.


(whoops sorry for the typo)

Similar things are happening here in Western Canada. Creationists are trying to start their own "museum" in Alberta, the most openly reactionary province in Canada, although the level of atheism is slightly higher over there than in the formerly "progressive" province of Saskatchewan. Still one of the Christian elementary schools here in Regina went out of business and was torn down for a new housing development. Every bit helps I suppose.

About this Blog

  • From the folks who brought you the weekend, a sometimes happy human blogging from the left of centre and keeping it sceptical, freethinking, secular and humanist. Because every reasonable human being should be a moderate socialist – or drinker – or preferably both. “It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan.

About Labour

It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few. Where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe. And where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.’

What is Humanism

  • Humanism is the belief that we can live good lives without religious or superstitious beliefs. Humanists make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared human values. We seek to make the best of the one life we have by creating meaning and purpose for ourselves. We take responsibility for our actions and work with others for the common good.
