(Gee, I bet I could start a meaningful and polite discussion about evolution on the internet. I bet no one's ever discussed this on a web forum...)
I'll just say that the issue is infinitely more complex than simply God vs. Darwin.

Indeed, the issue is at the heart of the politics of discourse, raising the question: Who maintains epistemic power? In other words, who controls what we know, and what are the conditions of this control?

Right, this isn't about creation itself so much as it is about the politics of it all.

The 'issue' isn't complex at all: there is a preponderance of evidence FOR evolution, and there is NO EVIDENCE for divine creation. The only reason why this skit is so funny is because it depicts (in overblown satire) the typical ad hominem attacks that fundamentalists used to resort to in an effort to refute the hypothesis. More recently, anti-evolutionists have attempted to use a half-baked 'science-lite' argumentative approach which at least to date, has not been able to offer reasonable alternative interpretations of the aforementioned evidence.

I agree. Let's see some more posts about scientific topics - I think we've all had enough theological mumbo jumbo for one lifetime.

Magically I think I just did that very thing.
