  1. Hi,
    I regularly listen to the LUEE podcasts. The one about creationist claims has somewhat shocked me. The fact that there is a need to react to such claims clearly shows there is an underlying problem – in the podcast you mentioned educational flaws but that is perhaps a symptom of the same illness. Would be interesting to dig deeper into the underlying mechanisms of the psychology that can lead to a society where a significant part of the population needs to have these rediculous claims corrected.
    In Europe (I am belgian) there is an icrease in creationism, albeit far from the magnitude the podcast was mentioning in Canada (and by extension North Amarica, no doubt), and I am hoping this segment of people will not soon increase. Also, where I live there is still a large proportion of the population that takes evolution for a fact, rather than any far-fetched creationist fairy tale. Perhaps tis can partly be explained by the European aversity of religious themes in public life.
    Anyway, I enjoyed listening to the podcast. Keep up the good work.
    Kind regards,
    Johan Peters.
