How to Talk to a Creationist - Colbert sets the Standard

FF: Someone wiser than I am once told me it's better not to argue with irrational people. That's usually true, but not always. At this point I'm turning the post over to my co-blogger Higgs.

Higgs: Hi people. Higgs here. I wanted to share this video which shows one of my favorite humans, Stephen Colbert, toying with a creationist the way a cat would play with a mouse before devouring it. Colbert’s swipes are so quick and skillful that his prey isn’t even sure he’s being eaten for breakfast. Enjoy.
