Flat-Earthers who walk upright

The New York Times magazine had an interesting piece yesterday on a gang of creationist geologists.

My favorite is the guy who said this: “If all the evidence in the universe turned against creationism, I would be the first to admit it, but I would still be a creationist because that is what the Word of God seems to indicate. Here I must stand.”

That isn't faith. That's idiocy.

This is a classic example of the brainwashing of religion. I also find it astounding, even though I've read the figure in numerous places, that polls show about half of Americans do not believe in evolution. If evolution is false, then biology and most of medical research is bogus. This could be one of the reasons we're falling behind the rest of the world in science.
