Rowan Williams against creationism

In a very interesting, wide-ranging interview at Lambeth Palace, Rowan Williams has spoken out against evangelical schools that teach creationism in the classroom. Williams is exactly right when he says that creationism “can end up reducing the doctrine of creation rather than enhancing it.” What Christian groups need is a deeper understanding of creation—which in itself would simply overturn the whole misguided project of creationism.

Nice job Rowan. Unfortunately, the Guardian doesn't do justice to the nuance of his position when is says he's clearly "on the side of science." Oh well.
