"OK, so there are hundreds of different ways of saying "I don't know", a very popular one being "God did it". And I happen to prefer "God did it" over "random mutations over an enormous period of time", for the simple reason that the deception behind the former is far easier to figure out."

1) Aurino rejects biological science. When
the bugs disappear in winter (evolution in progress), Aurino's explanation is not that
cold killed the bugs who have, however, left
behind a means of continuing their kind. Instead, he claims God did it.
2) Aurino rejects biological science in favor
of an anti-intellectual mass movement that follows a simple rule: whoever is in charge
should be given credit for everything and accorded unquestioning obedience -- and might Aurino hope to be on the leader's steering committee?
3) Aurino rejects biological science without comprehending it. He is simply ignorant. Why should we care what his opinion is except he
might arm himself?
