South Korean government removed the Ministry of Science and Technology a few years ago, and now they are planning to restore a science department. They named it "Ministry of Future Creation Science", and on occasion they call it "Ministry of Creation Science."
Some folks may remember the incident - the attempt by Korean religious (Christian) fundamentalist groups to alter certain facts related to evolution in science text books used by Korean schools - around June 2012, which was reported by nature and science magazines.
The name of emerging Korean science department reflects unbelievable level of hostility toward science and irrationality of those people who are now taking over the government.
