    I hope the mods let it fly that I slightly changed the title so as not to start with an insult.

    At any rate, this should be interesting....
    This debate should be as close a competition as the super bowl.

    You should see these Conservapedia types man, they are mentally deranged when it comes to this subject and all this debate will do is reinforce their delusions of intellectual integrity.

    They literally believe that science itself is on the side of Young Earth Creationism, their evidence is completely ****ing bogus.
    But you can't "beat" people who think like this. There is no standard of evidence, no argument you can make, and no discussion to be had that will in any way change their minds. They think they are right, because they think God said so and God can't be wrong. Any "evidence" they think exists for their argument is retroactive, they start with the conclusion and shoehorn evidence to fit the preconception. People subscribing to the idea are already beyond help. You cannot reason someone out of an idea they did not reason themselves in to.

    Furthermore, creationists have no argument to present in favor of their idea. Instead, they just attempt to poke holes in evolution and spit out as many logical fallacies as they can. They just throw the entire plate of spaghetti at the wall knowing that it takes more time and effort to debunk bull**** than it does to create bull****. The impression left to the idiots is that there are JUST SO MANY HOLES in evolution, and they don't really keep track of the fact that every one of these so-called holes is readily explainable with science and evidence.

    You can't prove Creationism any more than you can believe in evolution.

    Not sure if I can even watch this. Much like a Fox news program, I find it so cringe worthy and blatantly stupid I have to just shut it off.

    This was a great summary of not just creationist arguments, but of bs itself. This can also be applied to the conspiracy and environmental forums as well.

    I can't really imagine how else it would play out.

    Yes, these are aspects of human nature and not specific to religious fundamentalists.

    Only if you consider a competition as one side actually scoring points and playing by the rules, and the other team pretending that those points do not count because Jesus wouldnt allow that type of scoring in the bible.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Persecution complex, right on cue.

    Shocking, attempts to pull science down to a religion or philosophy.

    The pro-creation side has it's audience. It will score it's points. Public debate never was about objective reason but rallying the base.
