I read "The Taking" and that was enough for me.

And I am a church-goer.

Yeah, it's bizarre. It is interesting to not that creationists often also attack Einstein's theories of special and general relativity, along with evolution. I even heard one creationist (though I don't remember who) attack quantum mechanics because of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. The argument was that with God nothing is uncertain. I suppose the same thing goes for relativity: God's laws are absolute.
