    I have found that it is futile to debate with deliberately ignorant liars, just as intelligent design creationists have resorted to lies, even in court. For an interesting view, see Judge Jones' ruling in Kitzmiller v Dover.

    Why debate them at all? Unless it's an event for school, a contest where there are points awarded and somebody wins......

    Don't bother--Y.E. Creationists thrive on that sort of thing, it's a mental congratulation for them.
    Stick to science and find folks who can share it.

    When the paper by Eldridge and Gould on Punctuated Equilibrium came out, I was collecting trilobites from the Silica shale and had them sorted according to the stratum group. I was able to pull them out and see exactly what was being described.

    I love firearms & radio repair--Bullets & solder are both made of lead. Lead would not exist in a 6000-year-old universe but it's plentiful. Guess you could say that argument is--Shot to Pieces?

    Lead hasn't been in solder for a long time. Of course, serious hollow state geeks have several big rolls of the classic lead solder handy.

    I have been wondering about Punctuated Equilibrium, if global warming would get to a point where humans suddenly evolved to better cope with it. Similar to the plot of the novel Darwin's Radio. Hollywood always treats this as "wow we all get kewl superpowers!" but in real life we would change to cope with environment shifts.
