I have a simple solution. Throw the trash out of our medical schools! These people are not just ignorant. They are utterly arrogant as well. They don't want to learn. The choice is of course theirs to make, but it should have grave consequences.

I think that it is important to emphasise as you have that creationism really is an arrogant rejection of science. There can be much talk about the humility associated with faith, when in reality it is anything but. Someone who treats science as a second-best (or worst) way of looking at reality really should not be in a medical school.
