Debunking Corner - Pharyngula on Creationism

From here.  PZ is talking about Paul Nelson.  Paul is one of the authors of the creationist tract carefully disguised as a biology textbook and sent to all UK schools at the end of 2009, beginning of 2010;

It's infuriatingly dishonest. Notice what he repeats over and over: the textbooks "diverge from the actual evidence," they're "out of touch with the actual evidence," we "need to take these standard stories back to the evidence." This, from the Discovery Institute, a propaganda mill with no evidence for their fantasies about design at all. There is such an egregious disconnect between what Nelson says and what he and his cronies do that I half-expected his sanctimonious head to explode. If you're an intelligent design creationists, you do not have the privilege of hectoring others about evidence.
. . .
The creationists weren't just wrong, they're on the wrong side of history, and day by day they are bing shown to be increasingly far off base.
