It’s a worldwide case of the crazy?

It’s not just the Christian fringe that’s deluded itself into challenging the validity of evolution. Islam has its own anti-evolution fringe.
I can’t say I’m surprised. I am surprised, though, by just how whacky the fringe’s loudest voice in Turkey, Haroun Yahya, can sound:
When I asked how so many evolutionary biologists could be wrong, he replied, “We need to talk about the Masons’ role because Masons manage the world through a scientific dictatorship.” When I suggested that scientists would be surprised to hear this, he said that’s because the Masons’ “essential characteristic is that they act secretly and they are invisible.”
A “scientific dictatorship”? Whoa. And I thought blaming the Masons went out of style a while ago. Guess it’s too good a theory to let go.
