Anti-Evolutionism, Turkish Style
LGF, once again, posts a link to a radio broadcast that occurred last year, in which it is revealed that the Discovery Institute and the Institute for Creation Research have worked and are currently working with Turkish creation groups to remove evolution from Turkish classrooms. Here is the radio broadcast. It is a Real Audio link, so you will need that first. At one point in the broadcast, Paul Berlinski of the DI says that there is a world-wide revival going on of Islam and Christianity and that in 500 years, people will be talking about this revival. Newsflash: creationism may be one thing that Christianity and Islam have in common, but it is the ONLY thing they have in common. The Turkish government is shifting toward a hard line Islamist perspective. To collaborate with that just to promote creationism, is myopic indeed.
