Problem with debating creationists,
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.

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

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.
