Archbishop opposes teaching creationism

The Episcopal church has gotten a very rough ride from conservatives the past few years, and deservedly so, IMO.

But here's a ray of sense, from the Archbishop of Canterbury, hissownself:

Williams described creationism as "a kind of category mistake, as if the Bible were a theory like other theories."

"And for most of the history of Christianity ... there's been an awareness that a belief that everything depends on the creative act of God is quite compatible with a degree of uncertainty or latitude about how precisely that unfolds in creative time," Williams said.

Asked if creationism should be taught in schools, Williams said: "I don't think it should, actually. No, no."
