I agree I think I was more polite at the beginning as well (after debating 100+ creationists stating the same PRATs over and over and nutcases like Smooth Operator and the like, your patience starts to wear).

I don't think my position has changed much though.

First post about a year ago: Message 39 in 'What does ID theory say?'


“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that we've been so credulous.” - Carl Sagan, The Fine Art of Baloney Detection

"You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep seated need to believe." - Carl Sagan

"It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring." - Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World
