Neanderthal man 'walks among us'

From Bahrain's Gulf Daily News: Poland's far-right League of Polish Families (LPR), which is part of the coalition government, claims Darwin's theory of evolution is all wrong, that humans lived alongside dinosaurs and that Neanderthal man is still among us.

Last week, Poland's deputy education minister Miroslaw Orzechowski (info), a member of the LPR, bluntly rejected British naturalist Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection and his postulate that man is descended from apes.

'The theory of evolution is a lie, a mistake that we have legalised as a common truth,' said Orsechowski. [Neanderthals, Neandertals, Neandertal]
