Just a small post about politics, currently the new Dutch government is beiing created which consists of CDA, PVDA and CU. It’s regarded as a left – Christian coalition with CU needed to obtain the majority. Where CDA is moderate christian, consisting of all signatures, CU is somewhat more hard core Christian (though i doubt they will actually see it that manner). As you can understand I wasn’t really very happy about this coalition, left – christian and I could already see Creationists making happy dances around the curriculum for the average school.
But then the sun still started to shine. Ronald Plasterk was put in charge of the education department and lo behold he’s an atheist and has some very strong feelings about the story telling from the creationist. Just like Johan Cruyff said “every disadvantage has it’s advantage”.
