"Whack-a-mole", everybody's playing it.

Over at Dispatches from the Culture Wars, Ed Brayton, anti-religious right scourge extraordinaire, is tired of playing "Whack-a-mole"--the game in which you hit something in one place, and it just pops up in another.

He complains that certain creationist arguments keep popping up in various places even though they have been repeatedly refuted. Of course creationists complained about biology textbooks that continued for years to include Haeckel's embryos (faked evidence for evolution) and the peppered moth myth (the photos of which were staged) even though they had repeatedly been shown to be inaccurate.

Looks like Brayton and the creations have something in common. That ought to make him feel good.
