    the election of the current occupant of the oval office proves your point beyond any reasonable dispute

    Exactly. Everyone I've attempted to debate evolution with didn't want to know what it was. In fact, they resisted any attempt whatsoever to learn about evolution for themselves at all, so that by the time the thread inevitably lost momentum and whittled away they'd leave knowing as little as when they began. Hovind put it most succinctly though when he debated a biologist in a public forum: "I'm not here to debate the merits of evolution, but to save souls." The biologist then inexplicably went on to debate the merits of evolution, and I said to my monitor, "Dude, did you not just hear what he said? He's not going to debate the merits of evolution with you!!" The debate ended predictably: the biologist exhausted and frustrated, and Hovind grinning like the cat that just ate the mouse.

    Re-read what you just wrote and really think about this. No, don't immediately respond the instant you've finished reading my post...think: How can a species continue to undergo small genetic changes without those eventually resulting, over a long period of time and over many generations, in large genetic changes?

    Think.

    Kent Hovind... I implore everyone to find his "dissertation" to his fraudulent university and read it. It is hilarious, but about on par with the abject stupidity of the creationists.

    There use to be this guy on the old yahoo message boards from the Lutheran Missouri synod and claimed to be a "sceintist". When they got called on it after several posts it was hilarious.

    He was probably thinking "i before e except after c" when typed that.

    If only. With advances in medicine and gradual improvements in the social safety net fewer and fewer Darwin Awards are handed out every year.
