Announcing our Inaugural Creationist Numpty

Pastor Gareth Morgan who wants to run a school in the UK with taxpayer money gets the first award.  He said this;
“If evolution is true, there is no purpose to life."
“Creationism will be embodied as a belief at Everyday Champions Academy, but will not be taught in the sciences,” 
“Similarly, evolution will be taught as a theory. We believe children should have a broad knowledge of all theories in order that they can make informed choice.”
Is someone going to tell him?  Will he hire a science teacher that has the guts to tell him why this makes him a numpty?

Numpty;

Scottish usage:
a) Someone who (sometimes unwittingly) by speech or action demonstrates a lack of knowledge or misconception of a particular subject or situation to the amusement of others. 

b) A good humoured admonition, a term of endearment 

In this case;

"That isnae wit theory means, ya big numpty"

  1. “If evolution is true, there is no purpose to life." is like the Alpha Course saying that there is no point to life without God. Both are demonstrably untrue and potentially self fulfilling (if evolution is true then by definition life really does have no purpose). This sort of thinking is being exploited by Evangelicals especially through the Alpha Course. See my article here for more of this logical unpicking:
