Nice rant. Fairly comprehensive coverage of the basic fundy positions (although some of the "mainstream" creationist orgs are getting a tad more sophisticated in their approach - AiG f'rinstance says most of those arguments shouldn't be used any more. Pretty sad when even AiG won't use 'em.) You did miss a couple - one of my favorites is the old "if we evolved from monkeys why are there still monkeys?". You also neglected the whole "[insert cellular component here] is irreducibly complex, therefore God exists" line. However, that's a stylistic quibble. Hope you feel better now.
