It is almost sad to see Harun Yahya's group in a petulant way seeking some - any - attention from the Vatican during the Vatican's conference on evolution. While the Vatican has done a fine job of simply ignoring Yahya's antics, Reuters may have fallen a bit in their trap (and I'm reporting on Reuters' reporting - so am I being irresponsible too??). On their blog, Faith World, they reported on the disruption caused by a Yahya affiliate at the conference - and also quoted him in saying that the conference is "anti-democratic". Ha! Now Yahya has posted on his website that "Reuters affirms that the conference in anti-democratic". Hmm...well lets give Yahya a break. We already know the quality of Yahya's Atlas of Creation. So why should we be surprised by this circular logic.
And below is the clip that Reuters posted (note that it was filmed by a Yahya associate). This is quite painful to watch. It is as if an astrologer shows up at an astronomy conference and start making statements in defense of astrology. If the microphone is eventually taken away - then the astrologer claims that it is censorship on the part of astronomers. Here is the clip (but please also see the evolution of Yahya's Atlas of Creation):
