To use an analogy, how can Joe Blow be assured that NASCAR drivers don't vote ahead of time on who will win a race and then fake the entire race? It's possible, isn't it? Of course, it isn't in any driver's best interest to have this type of system, and this is just for 40 or so drivers.


One word: Wrestling.

And how long did they keep that secret? A couple of years?


Fair enough. It wouldn;t surprise me though if some dumb ass still thinks it's all "real". But I see your point. Keeping secrets on such a large scale is simply impossible.

PRATTs??? what does that stand for? sorry.


Points Refute A Thouasnd Times. Used to indicate that the points brought up have been refuted from the very get go, but still seem to pop up now and again when creationists claim they have evidence for creation. In short, if you se this term used, it means that that claim has been refuted so many times, it's a mystery as to why it's still being used.

BTW, ICR has this Bible for $35. Not sure why one would be selling it for $500!!!

$ 35 sounds a much more reasonable price. Why it's sold for $ 500 there? Some peeople will buy into anything.

The evolutionists such as coyote spend a lot of their time calling creationists works bad science and/or lying, but it is the evolutionists here who operate from anonymity making their charges while the creationists put their name on their works and when you read the articles you find them well sourced etc.

It seems all the evolutionist can do is throw his stones from the cloak of anonymity. That alone should be telling to an outsider observing the debate.


Wait, we have the actual names of the creationists here? Not only that, they did research too? Or perhaps, the studies we cite are anonymous studies, where scientists don't put their names under them and don't source them at all.

Oh wait, that's a lie...
