Creationism runs rampant

God knows I've had my own run-ins with creationism, not the least of which was my upbringing in the Mennonite church. I have very vivid memories of my Sunday school teachers "proving" to me that evolution was impossible by shaking a box full of watch parts. Of course evolution can't be true! Watch parts will never come together by random chance to form a working watch! What the hell does Darwin (and his decades of research) know?

It's bad enough that Answers in Genesis has built a $27 million dollar creation museum. But apparently us Canucks have done the same thing.

Never believe for an instant that Canada doesn't have rabid creationists. It's just that up here in Canada we tend to do things a little more quietly.
