Royal Society "Creationist" Resigns

Cheesey Re:please, please ... (658 comments)

But he didn't do that!

He just said that science teachers should be free to discuss creationism, i.e. why it isn't science.

The creationists couldn't have asked for a better outcome. They have always claimed that scientists "believe" in evolution as if it is was a religious faith, and that they won't tolerate criticism of their ideas or other beliefs. Scientists always said that was nonsense... and yet, now we have an example of a man who has been persecuted for speaking out of turn.

The greatest threat to science isn't the creationists, but the armies of Dawkinsbots who defend "science" with fundamentalist fervour. If you're going to fight creationism, you have to stick to the facts, otherwise you're as irrational as they are.

Dutch Islam film back online after death threats

Cheesey Cheesey writes  |  more than 6 years ago

never submit (70139) writes ""Fitna", Geert Wilders' film about the Quran recently discussed on Slashdot was launched on Liveleak yesterday. Liveleak has been forced to remove the video after "threats of a very serious nature...that could directly affect the safety of some staff members". Needless to say, the controversial film has already resurfaced on Bittorrent and Google Video. It's yet another demonstration of the Streisand effect."
