This column about sexism at Slashdot left me musing about the idea cultural evolution — is there a counterpart? a sort of cultural creationsim that argues that god made our culture the way it is and efforts to change it are therefore immoral and wrong? I suspect this is a close companion to the kind of creationism that we more commonly hear about — and in fact, that it might not be news to anyone but me. But it’s interesting to think about nonetheless — exactly how much of the world do Christian conservatives see as pre-ordained?
