Patty Andrews, the last surviving sister, dead at 94. Unless I'm mistaken, she's the one with the short solo in the middle of this:
Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. -- Thomas Jefferson
We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat
It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate
Howling about evidence is a conversation stopper, and it never stops to think if the claim could possibly be true -- foreveryoung

I have mixed feelings about him. I mostly disliked him but he did have his moments where he said a few things that I agreed with (especially when he was critical of US foreign policy and of the Bush admin). I also like socialism at it's core so I supported that aspect of his politics.
But overall he was like most politicians, a bag of shit.
quote:Dr. Duane Gish is a man who, in addition to his accomplishments as a speaker and writer, is known by many as the foremost creationist debater in the world today. He has logged literally hundreds of thousands of miles in order to bring the truth of creation to adults and children alike. Dr. Gish's travels have taken him to virtually every state in the continental U.S. and into 25 foreign countries, including the Soviet Union.
Dr. Gish is not only a distinguished scientist, but also a gracious Christian gentleman.
