According to an article in the scientific publication Geology, reported in the press, some of Australia's prehistoric creatures may have been wiped out by aboriginal settlers not climate change as previously thought. One story on this can be found here.

The article was reported straight by most news outlets. WorldNetDaily, however, reports it as Evolution's instability highlighted by new study. Their article subtitles the story "Expert says without reliable foundation, assumptions get wacky". Who is this expert? None other than creationist wingnut Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis, whose opinions are very revealing. He is quoted as saying:

"It's a good example of the fact that evolutionary ideas change all the time. They are reinterpreting their ideas as they look at the evidence," he told WND. "The result is that there's no real knowledge there."

Imagine that! "Reinterpreting their ideas as they look at the evidence." Can't have that in science. This is more proof that Creation Science is an oxymoron. The scary thing is that Ken Ham began his career as a science teacher. Today he teaches nonsense.
