Light Relief

One of the problems you come across in the evolution versus creationism controversy, is that some of the creationist opinions are so extreme or so off the wall that they are practically impossible to distinguish from a well created satire.

Here is a an example for you.

The general feeling is that this is a genuine blog - but surely this can't be real - can it?
You would think that as a member of the Episcopal Church, a smart man like Will Wright would not be capable of creating Spore.  However, we must be reminded that the Episcopal Church is the only church in america that ordains homosexuals on a regular basis.

It makes sense that a perverted church would cause a man to make the creations he has in this game.  It just may be that evolution is not the only thing to fear this game teaching your children.

Ok so it took me while to realise that claims that evolution makes people evil were not just a joke designed to make the creationists look silly.  It took me longer to realise that large parts of the US population have been brainwashed into agreeing with such claims while also not having a clue about what evolution actually is.  But even now when I have accepted that the world is stranger than I once thought, surely this guy doesn't honestly think the game is going to somehow make people gay?  Does he?

Surely such a view is just too daft to be real - it must be a satire?

Judge for yourself.
