Science isn't about convincing people - it's about describing and explaining what is, based on observation, theory and testing.

Who said anything about science. I said evolutionists not scientists.

Don't you know that you are responding to an entire thread dedicated to finding better ways for evolutionists to convince the fence sitters.

I realize its ludicrous* and unscientific, but hey, they are what they are.

*Note. Probably I am not allowed to type the word ludicro#s here, because this site only allows guys like Dr. A to use those kind of words. I guess its fair, because Percy really needs all the tools he can to help his side out.

Bolder-dash Suspended 48 Hours
Hi Bolder-dash,

You've been warned many times that concerns about discussion, including moderation, need to be brought to the Report Discussion Problems Here 4.0 (NOT A DISCUSSION TOPIC!!!) thread. I'm suspending you because you've brought a complaint about moderation to the wrong thread yet again after just being warned about it over at the The Origin of Novelty thread.

Your pattern is to engage in serious discussion for a while after resuming participation, but you soon begin putting most of your effort into complaining about moderation, and you do it in threads where that is not the topic. If you continue to do this then you will continue to be suspended.

1. Why are there so many fence sitters ?

There aren't, this is something you made up in your head. Polls show that the proportion with no opinion on the matter is by far the smallest group, averaging about 5% over the past decade.

2.Why do evolutionists always want to try to convince them?

They don't, this is something you made up in your head. The amount of time the average evolutionist spends trying to educate the ignorant is nugatory.

Have you taken into account the fact that you are posting on a website entitled 'Evolution vs Creationism'?. Surely on a site debating the issue it would not be unusual to find some amount of attempts at persuasion by the participants.

I'd suggest that offline, the bulk of the discussion related to Creationism is delivered from pulpits.


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead. William Lloyd Garrison.

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. Frederick Douglass

No, that's not the subject of the thread. The subject is how to counter BS from Creationists. Nobody expects to convince someone like you of anything. This thread is about dealing with PRATTS.
