Huh. I don't even see the conflict between creationism and evolution.

Cars are created. Cars evolve according to an economic "survival of the fittest."

Why are we still arguing about this?

Right with you both.

I'm actually a little miffed at Bill Nye for even agreeing to participate. You see - these "debates" aren't about winning over hearts and minds. All that they do is cause heads in the audience to nod - for people who already came in with their pre-formed notions to agree and strengthen their beliefs. And Bill Nye agreed to be a part of the theater and in a way lend credence to creationism.

And of course, this is not how science is done. It's not about votes. It's about results, and if you have the objective, verifiable, repeatable data to support your claims.

I have the same opinion, I watched part of it and it seemed like a waste of time. Mostly just the creationist view poking holes with obscure bible references. I truly don't understand how anyone with an educated mind can support that opinion...

Just keep moving.

I heard that it was going to take place. But beyond that I know nothing about it.

My personal opinion is that it will be a waste of time. Creationists motto is 'I've already made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.'

Did anyone catch the news about Bill Nye and the Creationist debate with Ken Hamm? Thoughts?
