Creationist, Oil Drilling, Pro-Discrimination Paul LePage Winning in Maine Governor’s Race

The Maine Human Rights Act is a law prohibiting employment, housing, public accommodation, credit, or educational discrimination on account of various sociodemographic characteristics of individuals including race, color, ancestry, sex, marital status and religion. In 2005, the Maine Human Rights Act was amended to prohibit discrimination in provision of credit, educational, employment, housing, or public […]

Documented: GOP’s Paul LePage Tries to Run Away from His Creationism

Kay at WhiteNoiseInsanity has nailed a story documenting GOP nominee for Governor of Maine Paul LePage running away from his clearly documented declarations of creationism — both as a personal belief and more importantly as a political stance for inclusion in Maine public schools.

Kay’s transcript misses some passages, so I’ll offer my own […]

Queensland Woes Expose Dangers Of Public Religious Instruction

Meet Paul LePage, Creationist for Governor of Maine

Two weeks ago, the moderator of a Republican gubernatorial debate asked candidate Paul LePage a simple and straightforward question: “Do you believe in creationism, and do you think it should be taught in Maine public schools?” Paul LePage’s complete answer:

We should be clear about this: If Darwin’s Theory is correct, we should be able to find a well defined trail of fossils that clearly show the gradual, very slow change of distant ancestors to man. Simply put, […]

Creationist Fundamentalists Get Unreal With Universal Facts

Someone has apparently decided to send me literature from the fundamentalist Christian American Family Association; the AFA Journal has begun arriving at my house. The January 2010 issue features a Nazi flag on the front cover, with the caption “The Evil Lives In Secularism” below. It only gets stranger on the inside. In his monthly […]

Creationism, Fossils and the Very-Handy God Effect

Four years ago, I got my very own personally-signed copy of Jim Pinkoski’s book, A Creationist’s View of the Dinosaurs and the Theory of Evolution. This unintentionally hilarious book spins and twists and pirhouettes in an effort to rectify an account of Biblical creation with the observable reality in front of us. Essential to each […]

Sarah Palin Doesnt Even Make Sense By Creationist Standards

Sarah Palin is a grandmother, and she’s still accepting beliefs from elders without critically examining them to make sure that they make sense. Palin has failed to advance beyond the reasoning abilities of a child in elementary school. […]
