We rarely blog about creationist activity outside of the region of Western civilization. The principle reason is that we’re not familiar with their culture, so we’re not comfortable discussing their attitudes and activities. But today is an exception. At the website of CitiNewsroom, which describes itself as “Ghana’s leading news website that delivers high quality innovative, alternative news that challenges the status quo,” we found an irresistible article.
Their headline is Lecturer asks Supreme Court to declare God created man. Sounds good, huh? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
A lecturer has filed a suit urging the Supreme Court to declare that man was created by God and not through the evolution theory propounded by scientists. The evolution theory explains that man evolved from apes. [Gasp!] Sir Johnson Anane, an Assistant lecturer at the Sunyani Technical University, argues that the evolution theory is an affront to the Christian faith. [News source omitted.].
Then CitiNewsroom says:
He is also raising issues with the position of science that the earth is a planet in the solar system, and that the earth’s movement around the sun results in days, nights, years and seasons. According to him, days, nights, years and seasons were created by God and do not come about as a result of any movement of the earth.
It’s about time someone took that stuff to court! After that they tell us:
The plaintiff argues that the evolution theory and the solar system theory were against the Bible which said God created the earth. “The implications of the theories are that the creative work of God as stated in Genesis has been cancelled, denied or nullified,” he stated in his writ.
Serious allegations! The news continues:
Apart from urging the highest court of the land to uphold his claims, Sir Anane also wants the court to ban the study of the evolution theory and the solar system in the country. “These theories are taught in schools (Primary, JHS and SHS) and need to be banned or abolished,” he said. [Yeah!] The suit is against the Director General of the Ghana Education Service, the President of the Ghana Science Association of Ghana and the Attorney-General Department.
This is very serious litigation! Let’s read on:
Meanwhile, the A-G [Attorney-General Department, presumably,] has urged the court to dismiss the suit, describing it as without merit and an abuse of the court’s process. In a preliminary legal objection, the A-G argues that the suit raises no cause of action as it does not state any constitutional issue for the court to interpret, or any constitutional violations by the respondents. [Typical Darwinist attitude!]
There’s a bit more to the article, but we’ll skip it because it’s about legal procedures — in Ghana.
Well, dear reader, do you think ol’ Hambo is following this litigation? If the creationists are successful in Ghana, will that be the start of a global movement against Darwin’s abominable theory? Let us know what you think.
