View From The Pulpit - A N Wilson

Just a passing comment in a larger piece;

It almost beggars belief that there are still "creationists" in English and American schools who wish to teach young students that the world is only 6,000 years old. Yet it is surely equally staggering that so many clever people suppose that these scientific facts somehow dispose of the ancient mysteries – of love, of moral obligation, of the all but universal sense of God – which have been part of all civilised discourse in every part of the world.
