Dawkins, camps and misrepresentation.

Postby Brian Jordan » Wed Jul 01, 2009 2:21 pm

Camp Quest, the non-religious summer camp for children has raised the ire of numerous publications. Richard Dawkins, who is in fact not involved, is held to blame. Nay, responsible for the camp and much more. The organisers, in rebutting misrepresentation by the Sunday Times, link to numerous articles making similar assertions.

This is not exactly on-topic but does demonstrate what the press can be like - and the resources the creationists can call on.

For what it is worth, I stopped reading the Sunday Times over 20 years ago because the quality of journalism was so poor.
