Possessor certainly has some major misconceptions about the evolutionary process in general...but he did do a far better job in his response than the single- or double-liner proposals we've seen from him previously.
I'd actually like to debate with him in the freckle topic as he laid it out, as opposed to the existing evolution-of-the-eye thread. They may share the same general topic, but the specifics would be significantly different given his statements on what evolves when and from what.
Anyone can begin Coffee House threads. You could start a topic there where you link to Cyber Prince's thread, then comment on it. If a focused discussion emerges the thread can always be moved to a discussion forum.
I'm sure we'd all enjoy slapping him around showing him the error of his ways.
Of course, you'd have to make him say something of substance first. Perhaps if he could post these fifteen questions of which he speaks ... I seem to remember answering them several years ago when I first read this piffle.
I think that the young Jimmy Stephens who originated the thread is a bit off base as it's not new at all. The so-called initiative started in May or June last year. It might even have started years ago; you never know with them.
The biggest scam artist who ever had the privilege to walk the face of the earth, Don Batten, has pretended that he got a few "answers" from "atheists" and that he is "refuting" the "answers". Those "answers" to the 15 questions were obviously also dreamed up by the arch scam artist himself.
You can see the the first chapter of the "rebuttals" to the scam "answers" by arch scam artist Don Batten himself here.
It looks like Chuck77 is interesting in discussing the 15 questions, see Message 1.
He is looking to get Buz involved, I assume for support.
If we can get Dawn Bertot and IamJoseph involved, we will have ouselves a hootenanny.
Jokes aside, if the other side actually believe that the questions are valid, they need to be told why they are incorrect.
I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

And you actually think we're capable of telling that trio anything? I mean, you've been here 6 months now, I would have thought you'd have figured out by now that you can always tell a creo, but you can't tell them much.
