This topic is to discuss whether or not evcforum debates are fair. If you think about it, there seems to be alot of educated evolutionistsd around here, but very few educated creationists. This is not to say that there are few educated creationists in the world, but that they are not presenting themselves on these forums. So I simply want to discuss if it is fair that we have like 30 educated evolutionists for every 1 amateur creationist in the forum.

Thread moved here from the Coffee House forum.

Guido, this is the place to start such threads.

First, this appears to be just a rant. Second it also seems to be based on a false premise, that the debate is between Atheist and Creationists.

Can I suggest that you edit your OP and try to frame it to make it clear what it is you wish to discuss.

rejected.
Sorry Guido but I have to reject this as it stands. First, you still seem to think that those who believe in creation cannot also support evolution. Second, it seems that all you are doing is calling one whole segment of the membership uneducated.

    Re: rejected.
    Faith recently raised the possibility of recruiting creationist experts and scientists to participate here. Perhaps Guido could try a different tack, saying that there appear to be many evolutionists here who are professionals in one or another field of science, while this is much less often so for creationists.
