Re: Come one come all
Creationists here are given tremendous leeway, far more than non-creationists are.

Re: Come one come all
Creationists want to avoid evidence at all costs.

The ones who come here, and last a while, are an exceptional group.

Most creationists can't stand the onslaught of evidence that is sent their way, and leave rather than face it.

Those who stay seem absolutely impervious to evidence.

As Heinlein noted, "Belief gets in the way of learning."

(Hey, that would make a great tagline!)


Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Dominated by creationists?
I think it is pretty clear that websites that are dominated by creationists brook no posts, or posters, that go against their particular beliefs.

I have been banned from such a site for pointing out the evidence favoring evolution. It doesn't matter how polite or circumspect one is, anything that goes against particular beliefs must be banned!

Here is is different. Nobody is banned for their beliefs on this site. They are only banned for flagrant violation of the rules, and creationists have far more leeway in that regard than do other posters.

What if this forum was dominated by creationists?
What if this forum was dominated by creationists?

It would be a lot more fun! Imagine what a target-rich environment that would be.

What if this forum was run by creationists?

Anyone offering opposing opinions, no matter the evidence provided, would be banned within three posts.

If...
If this site was dominated by creationists, they would be doing everything they could to get anyone who disagreed with them (even each other) banished.

Same as always.

"Multiculturalism" does not include the American culture. That is what it is against.
