Unfortunately, the title of this post is far more tongue in cheek than the body is going to be. I’ve been having a few discussions with Creationists, something I’ve also done in the past, and I have to ask: why does believing in Creationism make people say such stupid things? I have a theory – Creationism is so inherently ridiculous that attempting to justify it rationally results in wild mental gymnastics – but the floor is open to anyone with an alternative hypothesis.
Oh, and everyone seems to be shocked, absolutely shocked, that John McCain picked a potential VP who is, among other things, a Creationist. I sort of took it as a given that he/she would be.
