Stupid Is As Stupid Does

It really defies belief to realize that the Jesus whoopers who fought to keep the Florida state school board from adding “evolution” to the state’s teaching standards think they scored some kind of victory by getting the board to describe evolutiona as “a scientific theory” rather than fact.
Since creationist arguments are nothing more than word games and debater’s tricks keyed to the public’s misunderstanding of what “theory” actually means — hint: it doesn’t mean “wild guess” or “unsupported conjecture” — it’s pretty rich to see them crowing over wording that simply reflects what scientists already think about evolution. How long do you think it will take them to figure out that they look like even bigger fools over this?
Respect for religion is fine, but there’s simply no getting around the fact that creationists are so stupid it’s hard to imagine how they can even tie their shoes without hanging themselves.
