Creationism in the Boston Globe

Okay, so I was waaaay behind on this one. I know Blake and PZ and others already went there but a number of you sent this in and I like to keep tabs on the Globe for Bostonist. Therefore, I just posted this. You should click the link if for no other reason than to see the bizarre lolcat I’ve included. Also, I reference Twilight.
