Creationists Proving Evolution?

I found this article on the Panda's Thumb blog and found it incredibly amusing and ironic. Creationists have their own system for categorising organisms into Biblical "kinds" (a term which is essentially meaningless) called Baraminology. What has amused me is that creationists are disagreeing over how to classify many of the hominin fossils we have. They have even divided up the australopithecines into a separate group and into the Homo  group. That they cannot put these species into easily divided categories is testament to evolution. Check out the blog article.
