Hovind is currently in the 5th year of a 10 year prison sentence for tax evasion in the Federal penitentiary system, see Hovind's solitary considerations. I don't know when he's eligible for parole.
But I'll move this to the Coffee House forum.

Hello everyone!
I'm going to cease participating in this thread and begin moderating, but I won't take any actions
for a couple days.
First, kudos to the creationists for maintaining their composure and to the evolutionists for making sense.
Second, this thread began as an attempt to promote a debate with Kent Hovind, but since he's in jail it quickly morphed into discussing the nature of creation/evolution debates. If there's no longer any interest in discussing this topic then perhaps the thread should be closed.
I think the recent discussion contained several good examples of the techniques employed by creationists and evolutionists in debate, and perhaps some attention could be focused on those.

Moderator On Duty
Hello everyone!
As of this morning I will be actively moderating this thread.
This thread began as an attempt to promote a debate with Kent Hovind, but as he is in jail it morphed into a discussion of the nature of debates between creationists and evolutionists. This would be fine as a Coffee House topic, but discussion can't seem to resist debating actual creation/evolution topics.
I could request that someone propose a topic to discuss some of the things that IamJoseph has been proposing, but he is not at present making any concessions to requests for clarity concerning his claim that there is no such thing as nature. Dawn Bertot is doing little better, for example at one point claiming that creationism has nothing to do with religion, and meanwhile IamJoseph keeps bringing up the Hebrew Bible.
So my inclination is to move this thread to Free For All (which should perhaps be renamed Beyond the Looking Glass) where there won't be any significant drain on moderator time. Any objections, or do participants plan on following Hooah's lead in Message 159 and discuss the topic?
