It was worth opening this thread just to see Dawkins called a guru, even if it was jokingly.
"The arrogance and intolerance of the atheists, exemplified by Prof Dawkins, is their Achilles heel"
The problem that creationists have is that they think that evolution MUST be like their own religion - a holy book that dictates, priesthood, and that evolutionists are organized and connected. Or, even that evolutionists are a religion. Not all of them, of course, but they tend toward this kind of thinking. My impression is that evolutionists are none of the above.
Anyhow, creationists then use the above overlay on evolutionists to argue w and discredit them. That is the strawman method of arguement.
