Creationists have now left California

Ok, I wish that headline could be absolutely true, but us Californians will still have to deal with the occasional loonie. However, the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) is moving their headquarters from Southern California to Texas. Zeno has the story.

For those of you who don't know, the Institute of Creation Research is one of the original creationist organizations. It was founded in the 1970s by the well-known (if you study this stuff) creationists Henry Morris (who died last year), Duane Gish (the inventor of the "Gish Gallop", where you spout out lies faster than your opponent can rebut them. Ok, I'm sure he didn't invent it, but it's named AFTER him for goodness sake), and Harold S. Slusher (who isn't as famous). The Institute of Creation Research was one of the first organized and successful group which tried to make creationism look like science. Well, they're not our problem anymore. You have my deepest condolences, Texas.

Did you know the board of Education Director in Texas is a creationist?

And have you heard of this?
