Hi Archangel

Again you are doing a great job, so just want to let you know that another YEC is reading your debate. I would jump in so that it lessens the amount of posts that you have to debate, but I've sort of got my hands full, in my debate in Miscellaneous Topics in Creation/Evolution - Transitional fossils and quote mining. Although many of the arguments are the same, so maybe we should both stick to one thread. Anyhoo, come past and have a read if you find the time.

The ignorance is yours Joe, in assuming that I don't understand how evolution defines itself just because I reject how it defines itself. I refuse to allow it to speak out of both sides of its mouth as it attempts to control the debate by limiting my ability to ask deeper questions about its philosophy than it would prefer to be asked.
Yip, this is why debates on here never really seem to get off the ground. They don't even want to admit that they have a worldview which they think is supported by the evidence. This is because when we compare the two worldviews (evolution v YEC) and see which worldview is supported by evidence, the YEC worldview wins.
Ah well, I'm just hoping that one day i will come across someone who wants to discuss, which worldview is supported by the evidence.

even so the story and hype has contributed to evolution's public acceptance. Same with Neanderthal man. The image of an ape-ish looking person i would say is still in the public mind. Despite scientists refuting this image of neanderthals this has not had a big impact on the public impression of neanderthals. As such even when it is not direct fraud, the overhyped and over-eager stories of these transitional fossils, etc. have contributed to its public acceptance. Many of these continue to persist in the public eye.
