Tantrum-throwing Harper appointee Gary Goodyear is asked a question about science. Goodyear responds by conflating science with "his religion". Goodyear becomes subject of well-earned criticism for his conflation.
Goodyear then takes to the airwaves and again illustrates his ignorance of science by confusing adaptation with the scientific theory regarding the mechanism behind it.
Conservatives then jump to Goodyear's defense by regurgitating Goodyear's conflation of adaptation with contemporary evolutionary theory and playing the victim card.
EDIT: Don't miss the comments below or at "The Nexus of Assholery", where Patrick Ross continues to argue that because Kent Hovind acknowledges that biological adaptation occurs, Hovind actually agrees with contemporary evolutionary theory!
EDIT II: Zorpheus brilliantly captures the YABBA-DABBA-DOO! factor.
