Griffith University Skeptics and Freethinkers

Update on CMI in Hervey Bay: The Empire Strikes Back.

In Creationism/ Intelligent Design, GUSSF Events!, Helping our community., Responses to the media, Science on September 21, 2010 at 11:51 AM

The Creation Ministries International Website now reads:

“Stop press! The arrangements for the seminar in Hervey Bay have changed. Several community organisations have expressed a wish to take a leading role in hosting the event and USQ Fraser Coast is working with these organisations to manage a smooth transition. Details of the venue will be available soon.”

In place of the more humerous:

“Stop press! A concerted campaign of vitriolic and deceptive opposition from persons outside the University of Southern Queensland has resulted in the USQ Fraser Coast campus no longer sponsoring the seminar.”

Is it to early to assume that “community organisations” is code for “church?“, or that this science fiction/right-wing fundamentalist Christian movement will be preaching in a school near you? Will a fellow skeptic be frozen in carbonite and taken away by Ken Ham? I know I’ll be keeping an eye out for the sequel.
