Can we all agree not to

Can we all agree not to continue this "debate". I think all have stated their cases as best we can - time to let the "debate" end. At least here.

If not, we will all remain in a "trolling" holding pattern. Time to land.


After all, since there is a “scientific consensus” regarding evolution, there is no debate. There is no point in entertaining any notion that evolution did not occur since clear thinking “scientists” believe that it did. All intelligent people already accept evolution, right? Was that the point you were trying to make?

I know when I’m beat.


Evolution: Fair and Balanced?

Dr. Scott favors keeping evolution in the science classroom and creationism out. That’s how you when debate, don’t bother responding to your critics, simply outlaw criticisms.

Perhaps one of my liberal friends can explain how this is progressive.

You know that the lecture on evolution will not point to any discrepancies with the theory. You know that the lecture is going to ridicule intelligent design without any rebuttal. So I ask, what is the point? Dr. Scott will be preaching to the choir (pun intended).
