How to answer a fool

Proverbs 26:4 says "Do not answer a fool according to his folly."
Proverbs 26:5 says "Answer a fool according to his folly."
So, what is the proper response to a fool?

Prov 26:4--Don't become a fool to argue with a fool.
Prov 26:5--Don't let a fool think himself wise because no one can defeat his 'sterling logic' yet give him a wise answer to chew on.

So does this answer the question of who is more the fool. The Fool or the Fool who follows a Fool?

In the year 2000, then presidential hopeful, Al Gore, quoted a british climatologist from the famed global warming institute of England, informing his gathering of supporters that, "within a decade snow will be an increasingly rare event and by the year 2011, your children just won't know what snow will look like!"
While it's not my place to call another person a fool, what do you call someone who prefers the prophets of science or politics,over the 100% accurate prophets of God, all while they attempt to "explain" the "superstitions" of the Bible???
