Archbishop of Canterbury Opposes Creationism

AFP: The Archbishop of Canterbury, spiritual leader of the world's 77 million Anglicans, said in an interview that he did not believe creationism -- the Bible-based account of the origins of the world -- should be taught in schools.

"I think creationism is... a kind of category mistake, as if the Bible were a theory like other theories... if creationism is presented as a stark alternative theory alongside other theories I think there has just been a jarring of categories," Dr Rowan Williams told The Guardian newspaper.

"My worry is creationism can end up reducing the doctrine of creation rather than enhancing it," the most senior clergyman in the Church of England added.
