But a thought: I get the impression that (intelligent design) creationists believe in the power of the word, all words, literally. So, if someone calls some algorithm a evolutionary strategy, it has to be linked with the Theory of Evolution in general, and burning the effigy means destroying the real thing.

At the other end of the spectrum we have a nincompoop like Ray Martinez employing a similar method. It is all about words, and using his own definitions of words and terms to create a fantasy world of evidence why evolution is false.

Ignorance and denial of reality is a prerequisite for all flavors of creationism.

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.
