What theory next for debate on equality?

If, as the Rev William Park says (Write Back, July 13), the inclusion of creationism in the National Trust exhibit at the Giant's Causeway is simply one of equality and freedom of expression, then I assume we can expect this to apply to other 'alternative' scientific theories.

For example, we are presumably now going to teach Scientific Storkism, the theory that it is the stork that brings babies, as an alternative to biological reproduction.

After all, studies have shown a significant correlation between the number of storks and the number of newborns in a given area, offering strong empirical support for what is now known as Intelligent Delivery.

All in the name of freedom of expression and equality, you understand.
