Dawkins: Creationism Mostly a US Problem

The Irish Times has a short story on Richard Dawkins. Dawkins gave a speech in Dublin, at the RDS Concert Hall. Genevieve Carbery writes:

Dawkins said that while creationism was still largely an American problem, we needed to take stock of what was going on in the United States.

On this side of the Atlantic, Dawkins said that an influx of a very large Muslim population was difficult for scientists because Muslims believe that every single word of the Koran is true.

It may very well be that Islamic creationism will prove to be a more potent enemy than Christian fundamentalist creationism.
