From the pages of The Skeptic - Did We Say That?

Creationists Farewell Some Old Friends.

Imagine for a moment that you were the proud possessor of an infallible science textbook. Imagine further that you could contact the infallible author of this textbook at any time and receive guidance as to the books correct interpretation.
