Intellectual cousins

Damian Penny has a post making the point that:
Creationism, Holocaust denial and 9/11 conspiracy theorizing have a lot in common.

...by way of clarification, I should note that I don't believe Creationists are anywhere near as vile as Holocaust deniers or 9/11 conspirozoids. I think you can be a basically good person and be a creationist, whereas the others are completely lost to me. But creationist "scholarship," sadly, relies on many of the same techniques.
