Remember guys, your job wouldn't be to successfully explain your positions to us evolutionists, but to fellow creationists. Evolutionists would only assess whether a position had been successfully communicated or not.
That's not a bad idea. Atleast it would be a discussion and we could use every available source for the arguments we are trying to make. If we agree great, if not then we proceed till were on the same page.
It could maybe put the Creationists on the same page on more detailed issues. How would you go about implimenting this?
Could it go in the new "creationism" forum right under the "Biological Evolution" forum?

Great Debate
Percy writes:
We'd set them up with their own The Great Debate thread, and we could have a parallel thread in Coffee House or Miscellaneous Topics in Creation/Evolution for comments/discussion for the rest of the members.
Well, im not sure that would work. It would feel like we were being fed to the loins while the Romans look on with glee as we battle it out.
I think a "discussion" would be better than a Great debate but if the Great debate is the only avenue then it will have to do.
Maybe it can be a reasonable debate in the form of explaining our positions and going thru each point till we can reach an agreement or a stalemate on each point.
