Here’s Friday’s National Post column about John Tory and creationism. Apparently it was a good one to finish on before I book off (from newspapering) for a bit; it’s generating a lot of mail. In a related story, the old Kettlewell experiments on the peppered moth, which lost their standing and were cited by the creationists for a while as an example of Darwinian bogosity from old-time textbooks, have apparently been rehabilitated. (It should be noted that the original field observations which Kettlewell was testing never went anywhere.) Meanwhile, Jack Chick has a new tract out; perhaps it’s timed so as to sway Ontario voters?
