"I'm burning, I'm burning!..."

Although every side in an argument tends to have its own complement of fools, the idiocy exhibited by fundamentalist Christians, in debates over evolution or the origin of the universe, often takes us into the realm of comedy.

Take this example, lifted from a list of fundie "bloopers":

"Everyone knows scientists insist on using complex terminology to make it harder for True Christians to refute their claims.

Deoxyribonucleic Acid, for example... sounds impressive, right? But have you ever seen what happens if you put something in acid? It dissolves! If we had all this acid in our cells, we'd all dissolve! So much for the Theory of Evolution, Check MATE!"

The full amusing-and-yet-slightly-scary list is here.
