No, he's bashing folks who read Genesis literally. Not all Christians do. The ones that don't probably do not run in your circles so you've never met them, but they do exist.
One of the listed features of the fundamentalist mindset in a psychology paper my wife recently brought to my attention, is the inability to see the world in anything but "either-or" terms -- either you bend to will of Allah, or you die. Either you take Genesis literally, or you are not a Christian.
Believe it or not, there are a lot of shades in there, too.

Either the Bible is the Word of G-d and believed by the Christians or it is not...you can't have it both ways. I will continue to believe a higher power much smarter and with a much better imagination designed the heavens and the earth. We are all individually different for a reason. The big bang did "NOT" bring about such a design. The earth having enough oxygen, food, water, etc for humans and animals along with resources designed in such a way to take care of mankind did not happen because a scientist said a boom took place in the universe... do you realize how asinine that sounds? There is a Creator and if people who are so into themselves can't admit there is a Creator then so be it. If you wish not to believe in G-d's word then that is your problem not mine. The point to all of this is, he was bashing believers. As for me, I choose to believe.
