Agreed. And I miss his presence here.

If only all Creationist arguments were so unsophisticated!
No, unfortunately there are people who engage in what is ridiculously called "creation science", sometimes dressed up under the re-christened name of "intelligent design." And those are the folks who are trying to have their religious beliefs taught as science in school classrooms.
Ignorant asswipes like The Creation Research Society and The Institute for Creation Research are, as the latter's website proudly proclaims, "equip[ping] believers with evidences of the Bible’s accuracy and authority through scientific research, educational programs, and media presentations..." Thankfully, the court victories have generally (and most recently) favored fact over fiction and science over fantasy, but it's still too early to let our guard down by downplaying just how convincing some of this religion-in-a-lab-coat crap can be to those whose science education is already sub-par.
