The point is he hears some grandiose creationist claim, then goes and investigates what scientists actually say on the matter, and invariably discovers that creationists were full of shit all along. He's not so much getting his science from creationism, as he's getting the inspiration to investigate the facts of the matter from hearing ridiculous creationist claims.

I like the series because that's exactly how I myself got interested in evolutionary biology in the first place. Somebody said something that sounded absurd, but I didn't know the facts, so I decided to check the scientific literature for myself. I discovered creationists are wrong about pretty much everything.
