Trying to get your average Joe creationist to understand the phrase scientific theory is as hard as getting a fish to enjoy mountaineering. Its an unimagined world for them - it requires a complete reversal of their normal modes of thinking and being. The fact that humans could explain the complexities of this world without a creating God is a world view they cannot grasp. It's like asking a tuna if it appreciates the view from the top of Mount Everest. Bunc

Sad end for worlds oldest clipper ship

THE world's oldest clipper, the SV Carrick, is to be broken up.
Permission has been given to dismantle the 143-year-old ship, which is currently stored on a slipway at the Scottish Maritime Museum in Irvine, after a study concluded that restoration would cost £10million.
Enthusiasts from around the world had hoped that the vessel, which sank in Glasgow 15 years ago, could have become a top tourist attraction, but North Ayrshire Council decided the wreck was too far gone.

Graham Kennison the Museum trustee said: "It's a very sad end."
