I want to nominate Rahvin's reply to me, Message 174, in the thread "Studying the Supernatural" in the "Is it Science" forum.
It is brilliantly written so that with a bit of effort even the ultimate lay person that I am can grasp what he is saying. It doesn't mean that I agree with his ultimate conclusion but he does an incredible job of explaing his rationale.
He has very generously put in a great deal of time and thought into the post which is remarkable considering my obvious lack of scientific knowledge in the area we are discussing.
I now have to figure out how to respond. I'm glad it's a discussion and not a debate. If it was a debate it would be his cannon against my pea shooter.

I have to nominate GDR for his raft of limericks putting forward his theistic position. An entire frikkin argument done entirely in limerickal rhyme!!!! With proper cadence and points well made!! It's insane but incredibly impressive.
I have tried to keep up. But both in terms of style and content I have failed despite my genuine best efforts. I can't make my points stick to the right format and when I do they don't seem to really get what is meant across. I will keep trying. But it is a one sided contest so far.
