Darwinist Biology Professor Thinks Abraham Worse Than Hitler

It's getting difficult to parody Darwinists, because their real statements are already so over-the-top. Take P.Z. Myers, the militant Darwinist biologist at the University of Minnesota, Morris. A few days ago, Prof. Myers suggested that he regards the Biblical patriarch Abraham--revered by Jews, Christians, and Muslims--as worse than Hitler:

I think that if I had a time machine, I wouldn't do anything as trivial as using it to take out Hitler before he caused all that trouble. I'd go all the way and pick up Abraham. I wouldn't kill him, oh no-since I've got a time machine, I'd just drop him off in the Permian while I was on my grand temporal tour.

That's right: According to Myers, taking out Hitler would be "trivial." What would really save humanity is getting rid of Abraham. It's hard to caricature the comments coming from Myers, because most of his comments already are a caricature.
