Archbishop of Canterbury Says: "Don't Teach Creationism in the schools."

OK, this one I edited way down. Too much heavy reading can confuse us. The point is that leading mainstream churches regard “Creationism” or “Intelligent Design” as sectarian poop, spread by Bible literalists who cannot bear to let go of an absolutist life-line. Doubt, to these people, is awful: maybe a sin. Thinking for oneself is also sinful. The world is a scary place and they want as much authority as they can get, about everything. That's why they like Bush and his certainties, Cheney as his dead-eye shot-gun, Rumsfeld with his always absolutes.
