A knowledge of evolutionary science equivalent to a PhD is not required for a polite discussion. But if you want to learn something you'll need to bring a better frame of mind than repeating inane slogans ... "goo to you via the zoo". Sorry if that came across as an insult, but I don't know how else to characterize it.
Of course I can't speak for every creationist on whether they are anti-science. But the movement to get creationism and intelligent design in schools is demonstrably anti-science. Its strategy includes attacking the scientific method, miss-characterizing the current body of knowledge on evolution and undermining it so that a religious point of view can be imposed in a science class.
Evolution is not anti-religion. Evolution provides a compelling explanation for the origin of species and the diversity of life on Earth. That's it. Evolution does provide any commentary on which religions are true and which religions are false. A theist can look at evolution and note that it is inconsitent with his faith, but reconciling that discrepancy is outside the scope of the science of evolution.
