Fellow Brits---Hang your heads in shame
For long we have both laughed at and pitied our cousins in the colonies across the Atlantic for harbouring creationists in their southern states.
No more can we do this, indeed it is our turn to suffer derision and I hope some sympathy as well.

I found this on Keith Fitzpatrick-Mathews excellent blog https://badarchaeology.wordpress.com/ and web site http://www.badarchaeology.com/

"The Creation Science Movement was founded in 1932 and started out as The Evolution Protest Movement. Based in Portsmouth (Hants, UK), it continues to claim that “society witnesses to the effect of atheistic humanism which belief in the theory of evolution has brought–fragmented family units, abortion, child abuse etc.”. It runs its own exhibition in the former National Provincial Bank at The Hard in Portsmouth, called Genesis Expo (warning: Boris the Tyrannosaurus rex is terrifying, apparently the bastard offspring of Jurassic Park’s T Rex and Barney)."

This claims to be the oldest creation movement in the world. If so, I must apologise for us doing it first and giving the idea to the rest of you....Sorry.
If you must look here is the exhibition http://www.genesisexpo.co.uk/ (I know you are now curious to see what Boris looks like) and the creationist science movement https://www.csm.org.uk/ . I don't need to warn you of the stupid you will find.

What is it about the south, both here and in the US that makes the thick and dense gravitate there?

What do you mean Life is short. It's the longest thing you're going to do.

So you first give us Darwin and then this?

You are still on the plus side but just minimally. Angry

If we're actually honest about it, we generally export the worst to other continents. The thieves went to Australia and the puritans went to America.

Britain ... getting relatively better by making everywhere else relatively worse.

Well, you also shipped prisoners to Georgia...so the South. Your Puritans either got them "right with gawd" or they used the church to exploit their neighbors. Thanks a lot Angry

Or they are one and the same. Which would explain the televangelists.

Well that certainly sheds light on Ken Ham, but he ricocheted off of Australia and landed in America. Well played......Consider

RE: Fellow Brits---Hang your heads in shame
Strangely enough I'm having an on-off sparring match with a creationist troll on a social media site who appears to be from that neck of the woods. A complete nut-job who is a nasty little shit.

Wonder if he's connected?

It's the opposite here in Ireland. They're up North. Descendants of those protestants you lot sent over here to colonise the land all those years ago. The Caleb Foundation comes to mind.
