Did Salon Author Gordy Slack Accidentally Show He Doesn't Believe in Darwinism

So in the middle of an article about Intelligent Design after the Dover decision, this appears in the Salon article:
But like bacteria adapting to antibiotics, creationism has slimmed down once again, this time shedding even a mention of an intelligent designer.

I don't want to critique the overall point he is making, but I want to point out the analogy Mr. Slack uses.

Like bacteria slimming down.

Bacteria doesn't beef up to thwart antibiotics. Blind, natural forces don't beef up, they slim down. In other words, Mr. Slack confirmed the thesis of Michael Behe's new book.
