Creationists were up in arms yesterday as Nobel Prize winner, Al Gore, declared that the debate on evolution was finally over.
A spokesman for the Climate Change Crusader, Mr Gore said, "All the top scientists in the world have now agreed that evolution, as a theory is indisputable which, in effect, proves that there is no God". He went on to say, "Of course there are still deniers and skeptics out there who will claim to believe in God, but they are mostly in the pocket of the Vatican and other large religions".
Al Gore, who won an Oscar for his cartoon film about a Polar Bear and a magic hockey stick, has pledged to sever his close religious ties to the Baptist Church in the wake of this announcement.
Prime Minister, Dave "Nick Clegg" Cameron, has wasted no time by swiftly introducing a "Pay to Pray" scheme (the Secular Capping for the Acquisition of Money System - or S.C.A.M.S for short). Critics claim that this is yet another stealth tax designed to reduce the fiscal deficit similar to the "cap and trade" system - allegedly put in place to reduce Carbon emissions.
Deputy Prime Minister, Mr Clegg, said, "S.C.A.M.S will enable religious bodies to cash in on their unused prayers by trading them with other such organisations.
Speaking this morning from the private beach at his new $8.5 Million holiday home, the globe-trotting, multi-millionaire, Mr Gore, vehemently denied that he would be investing in SCAMS or making money out of any other capping schemes.
Tell us what you think.
Would you pay to pray?
Is Al Gore the new Messiah?
Is God dead?
