On my morning walk, I see a big placard on someone's garden fence, advertising a website titled love4science. I went to have a look:

Yup, a creationist outfit, though they are not very obvious about it, and their kit focuses mainly on straightforward physics and chemistry. Not sure if they slip in a bit of preaching anywhere.

But I see they claim their science kit is compatible with the Apologia Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics book. I looked around on the web, and this is what Apologia is all about:

Ought to be a hoot to look through those, er, textbooks. But I ain't buying one. :-)

So: creationism is alive and well and living in South Africa.

Creationism seems to be quite rife among engineers, and perhaps not surprising: they look at living things, and from their point of view, such things are obviously designed.

Would appear so. After the demise of apartheid, Afrikaners turned to religion big time, and judged by what I see on Facebook and in magazines like Juig, fundamentalism is rife among them.
