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."
