Traffic is down and news is scarce, so once again we need to entertain ourselves. Herewith we present a few random goodies, which may encourage you to add some of your own:
1: Louisiana continues to be the most creationist state in the country: Senator Ben Nevers Will Bring Legislative Experience to Chief of Staff. A few excerpts:
Governor-Elect John ‘Bel’ Edwards has tapped Democratic State Senator Ben Nevers to coordinate his transition team and be the administration Chief of Staff.
[Nevers was] the author of the now-controversial Louisiana Science Education Act in 2008, which opened the door for teaching creationism in public schools.
2: Creationism in Denmark — see Pair of Danish politicians plagued by scandal. Some excerpts:
Education Minister Esben Lunde Larsen was forced to respond to claims this week that he plagiarised parts of his Ph.D. dissertation. Larsen dismissed the accusations as “sloppiness at worst,” but has requested that the University of Copenhagen open an investigation.
The minister was accused earlier in November of giving misleading information on his C.V., when it emerged that he had studied at The Danish Bible Institute (Dansk Bibel-Institut), a religious institution not accredited in Denmark, between 2001-2006, and not at the University of Copenhagen as stated on his CV.
Larsen holds a PhD in theology and has not been bashful about the fact that he believes in God and creationism, which critics argue make him an unfit choice for his position.
3: Your Curmudgeon proudly announces that he has no friends on Facebook.
