Default Creationists posing as atheists!!!

Looks like creationists recently were posing as atheists at LaTrobe Uni giving out their Darwin book. 4 Students told me "they said they were atheists". How dishonest is that!!!

One of the students will bring the book in for me to check out, it is definately one of those Darwin books like Ray Comfort <sigh> did.

More info soon.

This offends me profusely as an educator!!!

When has religion ever 'not' been dishonest in one form or another? I must have missed something along the way.

We should pretend to be creationists and hand out copies of the Bible with a warning about it's truth, and also not to read it while drinking or operating heavy machinery.

Dishonesty is rife in the leadership, I agree, but not throughout the Creo/ID community - the leadsership rely on the ignorance of their minions who do the work (like handing out free copies of Origin).
