Ruth Gledhill is The Times’ Religion Correspondent. She published a very long post midweek about how her cat is better treated than some humans in Haiti. Very valid point of course, but why, I wonder, did she take the completely unnecessary step of dissing us Creationists with this,
New research shows that they [i.e. animals] can even communicate across species. Quite apart from what this article tells us about Darwinian evolution, further undermining the absurd medievalist claims of creationist fundamentalists…
After I raised this issue in the comments, Creationism became the new topic for discussion. So I asked,
What is the law that states that every thread where Creationism is even barely mentioned ends up with that as the topic? You mean there’s not one? Well, let us honour our host. Let this phenomenon be known as “Gledhill’s Law”!
Of course, what Ms Gledhill was saying is patently nonsense, as I explained,
I communicate with my dogs all the time and vice versa. Doesn’t mean we have a common ancestor that evolved from pond slime.
You don’t think the Lord created the earth to be interactive?
Science has moved on a great deal since Darwin’s ideas made him famous. Life is far more complex than he could possibly have imagined.
Why would God, who obviously knows everything, including genetics, have played dice with evolution, when He could have created man in his own image precisely as He wanted us – and straight away – using His perfect knowledge?
Nevertheless, I give you Gledhill’s Law. Let’s get this baby into the language!
