Unintelligent Design

I was reading an interesting article about the evolution of E. Coli bacteria, and the thought struck can one of those Intelligent Design goofballs reconcile this science with their groundless beliefs. I'm reprinting a section of the article here, all italics are mine. Let's see if I'm up to the challenge:

The scientists concluded that at some point in the not-too-distant past, this strain of E. coli O157:H7 evolved rapidly into was created by God to be a far meaner pathogen than its ancestors probably to punish homosexuals and Muslims. Natural selection God altered its genes quickly, thanks to the ability bacteria have to reproduce in as little time as 20 minutes his incredible compassion. Speeding up their evolution creation even further was their ability to take in DNA from other microbes, even from species that are only distantly related God's desire to finish really fast, so He could get back to judging goats and sheep. The genomes of bacteria are being continually rejiggered by God into new combinations of genes. Some bacteria become better at capturing sunlight, others at resisting antibiotics. And, in the case of the spinach strain of E. coli O157:H7, the introduction of viral DNA has made them far nastier because in His infinite wisdom, He decided the world needed a nastier strain of E. coli O157:H7.

Someone please explain to me how these anti-intellectual idiots look themselves in the mirror.

What does crazy look like when it is reflected back at you?
