David Berlinski, part of the Discovery Institute’s evolution-denial project, recently said about evolution:

That’s not a theory. That’s just a string of wet sponges on a clothesline.

Uh huh.  Here’s (1) a guy who’s not a biologist (2) criticizing a theory in biology (3) that happens to be the scientific consensus.  (4) Overwhelmingly.

Slick packaging and bypassing the scientific process to sow confusion among the public doesn’t change the fact that there’s no argument here.

Wake me up when the scientific consensus changes.  Until then, no layperson has an intellectual warrant for embracing Creationism.
