There goes Lancashire

Remember the God that Richard Dawkins wrote about, you know, the one that apparently no one believes in anyway; well it appears that He’s going to be showing up in Lancashire

The latest salvo in creationism’s increasingly ferocious battle with evolution is about to be fired in Lancashire. Not in a fiery sermon preached from the pulpit, but in the form of a giant Christian theme park that will champion the book of Genesis and make a multi-media case that God created the world in seven days.

The most disturbing thing about this article is the realisation that we will no longer be able to point and laugh at Kansas, which is just sad.

The money quote for me, though, is at the bottom of the Guardian article

‘Wigan council slammed the door in our faces. You mention the C [Christian] word, and people don’t want to know,’ Jones said.

No, I don’t think the C word in this case is “Christian”, I think it’s “Creationism”. Remember though; no-one believes in this God any more. Honest.
