Yes, "progressives", College Liberals and Fashionable Leftists love to make fun of the Creationists; and the creationists certain deserve to be made fun of. But be wary who you're mocking when you have a ridiculously huge log in your own eye.
And that's the thing, so, so many "progressives" believe the dumbest bullshit. They mock creationism, but they believe that a little drop of a molecule strained 30000 times through water will retain magical properties. They believe in aura healing, crystal power, and the magic power of essential oils to cure your cancer. They don't believe that Jesus made the world 6000 years ago, and find that ridiculous because its 'unscientific', but they certainly do believe that if you have a "paleo diet" it will miraculously allow you to escape the very clutches of death; never mind that real historical "paleo" people died pretty horribly, and that there's no good evidence that the "paleo diet" really resembled what they ate at all. They believe in dolphin power, and that vaccines cause autism and white-light meditation cures it, or a vegan diet, or a $47 bottle of juice of some fruit extract from the rainforest; because they think the Rainforest is a magical fairy land.
Even the more rational ones will still believe that somehow labelling something "organic" will make it magically better and much, much healthier for you than something that has been through the process of the Green Revolution's Advances, so that a spotty and slightly wilted organic carrot is certainly going to be better for you and is worth the extra $4 it costs compared to a bunch of evil "GMO" ones, even if the "M" in that only consists in making a healthier carrot.
More terrifying is what they don't believe in (or rather, what they believe is evil): Western medicine, Science (except when being used to make fun of conservatives, but its definitely evil, for example, when its being used to design a new type of rice that will stop millions of children from going blind), any technology developed after the 13th century, and western civilization.
With rare exceptions, both sides believe idiotically stupid things; the only real difference is how the religious conservatives are less hipster about it. They're both equally righteous (just check out any raw food vegan condemning another vegan about eggs), they're both equally smug to those who aren't special like they are, they even both have the same judgmental sense of exclusivity. For example, and getting to today's link at long last: witness how Whole Foods is a temple to Bullshit, and how the way hipster progressives handle organic food can only possibly be compared to the most ultraorthodox of kosher/halal religious taboos ("I must cut bread with a separate knife, one that has never touched non-organic bread or there will be contamination!!").
