PZ refutes four bad arguments against evolution

Read. Bookmark. Refer to this the next time you need to refute bad arguments against evolution from creationists and IDologists.

Favourite bit:

The Second Law of Thermodynamics argument is one of the hoariest, silliest claims in the creationist collection. It’s self-refuting. Point to the creationist: ask whether he was a baby once. Has he grown? Has he become larger and more complex? Isn’t he standing there in violation of the second law himself? Demand that he immediately regress to a slimy puddle of mingled menses and semen.

Edited to add: Mind you, Ricky Gervais’ stand-up routine on creationism is probably even funnier.
