← Northern Ireland minister calls on Ulster Museum to promote creationism

Given that this minister doesn't believe the Giant's Causeway is millions of years old, I wonder if he believes it was literally created by Fionn Mac Cumhaill. I'd be surprised if the level of ignorance in the six counties is as high as McCausland claims, but if it is, then what is needed is not pandering to that ignorance, but better science education, perhaps at the expense of the religious bigotry which continues to be taught in schools there.
