Tamiflu is for Sinners

Here's a bit of exquisite skewering from Bill Maher in last Friday's episode of Real Time:

I expect the theists would find an escape from this criticism by claiming that the emergence of the H1N1 virus is an example of mere microevolution, which they grudgingly accept whilst holding out against macroevolution. But they are wrong: evolution is firmly established at both the "micro" and "macro" levels, at least as firmly established as, say, the claim that Tamiflu and frequent hand-washing are better protections against H1N1 than prayer.
