:lol:
Reminds me of a public lecture I attended years ago. The speaker, a real biologist, was in the middle of pointing out how ridiculous a literal interpretation of the Noah's Ark story is when a man jumped up in the audience and started screaming abuse and nonsensical statements, before being eventually lead out the door by the ushers.

I feel like going to the next creationist conference (that sounds so wrong) and bouncing down the isles shouting "I'm a Christian.'
