A Creation/Evolution Debate Ends Badly

In New South Wales, an argument about the creation/evolution controversy cost a backpacker his life.

English backpacker Alexander Christian York, 33, was today sentenced to a maximum of five years jail for the manslaughter of Scotsman Rudi Boa in January last year.

Mr Boa, 28, died on January 27 after being stabbed by York at the Blowering Holiday Park, near Tumut.

Later, the article notes:

The couple, both biomedical scientists, had been arguing the case of evolution, while York had taken a more biblical view of history.

This is tragic loss of life, bad for the argument and a terrible Christian witness, to boot.
