Why do people laugh at creationists?

This is a great series on youtube dissecting lies, distortions and misrepresentations of creationists with facts and evidence. This episode (22) addresses Ben Stein and his falsehoods.
Stein says that there has been almost no advancement of evolutionary theory since Darwin. How can any human being POSSIBLY take someone who says that seriously?

These videos are very entertaining and well recommended.

Damned good video.

The nub of it really *is* the conflation of "free speech" with the scientific method.

Their claim to relevance (as an alternative to evolution) seems to rest entirely on the notion that it is enough to simply *dispute* evolution (rather than offer any science of their own).
