An even bigger waste of time is telling people that they're wasting their time.

Well the hope is that by investing a little time now a lot of time is saved later. But I admit that given the current combatants need to argue the pants of an ant, it's probably fruitless hope.

Re: The Win-Win situation for Science
Not really. When it is shown exactly where and when modern creationists lie, it serves a good purpose.

My grand children, in a secular country, keep on being subjected to the lies of creationists. In state schools.

They have to attend Christian meetings. Every day. Compulsory. The President of my country promised that his party will be in power till Jesus comes. They learn about Adam And Eve and The Global Flood and all that nonsense. At school.

It's changing, though. The recent Supreme Court decision on equal opportunity for all religions got them to go into a flat spin and then disregard the court and claim that they won the court case. Yet, they want to appeal the decision, which they claim they won. Figure that.
