One of my parishioners on Creationism

One of my parishioners is a young historian, Dr Tim Stanley. I enjoy his rather quirkey thought, he amuses me, delights me, sometimes outrages me but always leaves me questioning my assumptions.
I also enjoy reading what he writes, have a look at this, about American creationists.

He also has a blog. His specialises in American history - I think of him as a second Alistair Cook - maybe some American bloggers might link to his site.

Grateful for the link to Tim Stanley's blog. I had no idea he had a doctorate! Must add his blog to my list. Did enjoy his post 'An Englishman abroad; not a pretty sight' and the mention of parts of Malaysia looking like Tunbridge Wells was so descriptive. He certainly has a wonderful way with words and could indeed become a second Alistair Cook. I look forward to reading his own 'Letters from America' on his blog.

It is certainly an interesting article on creationism. I recently read a review of a book which set out the story of American creationism as being a reaction to the extreme eugenics where the poor and the disabled were to be sterilised out of existence. One does not have to believe in the most literal interpretatin of Genesis to believe this piece of social history.
