Religion isn't a theory; it's a fantasy. Holy men are not intellectuals; they're crackpots who've corrupted the functioning of their own minds.

Passing out the idea that creationism is a "theory" also promotes the idea that theories are just arbitrary assertions--in itself, a corruption of rationality and science in the minds of the holy men's victims. Promoting creationism to the status of a theory is a serious problem; it will destroy the concepts of science and reason.
