5.0 out of 5 stars Problem with debating creationists, March 16, 2005
This review is from: Evolution vs. Creationism: An Introduction (Hardcover)
Debating creationists on the topic of evolution is rather like trying to play chess with a pigeon -- it knocks the pieces over, craps on the board, and flies back to its flock to claim victory.

The pro-creationist reviewers of this book clearly demonstrate this to be true.

This may not be a review of the book, it's priceless nonetheless. This quote flew away, so to speak, all over the internets.

Yes, I discovered it had taken on a life of its own about two years ago.

Well done! I can't believe that there are only four other replies to your post as of this date!

Now people are attributing this quote to Putin dissing Obama. Hilarious, considering it was uttered back when Obama was still senator.

Well done sir. This flawless back hand could not have a more deserving opponent.

I thought you were an author when I first got to this page. Someone just quoted you and I had to look you up. Well done.

Fascinating. I have read this comparison in a couple of other places, although I don't think it was being used to describe creationists because I have just started looking into the creation / evolution debate. As a put-down, it's hilarious, but as a review of a book i am considering buying, it is of no help whatsoever.
