Re: hateful abuse.
No such thing as EVER understanding the position of a creationist on this ugly excuse for a forum.
Absolutely wrong. We do understand the creationist position very well. If we didn't, then how could we see clearly that it's not worth a truckload of fetid dingo kidneys?
Now, there was a time when we didn't understand the creationist position, but that is long past. Back in the earliest days of "creation science", when professional creationists, such as ICR's Dr. Henry Morris and Dr. Duane Gish, were criss-crossing the country in the late 1970's with their travelling snake-oil show on the "creation/evolution debate" circuit, their promoters would regularly rope local scientists and educators as the "evolutionist" opponents. Since those "evolutionists" had never encountered "creation science" before, let alone research their claims, they were totally unprepared for what hit them. The creationists built a solid reputation for winning those debates.
So those "evolutionist" opponents hit the books and studied up on "creation science", learned and researched the creationist claims and learned exactly what mistakes and misrepresentations the creationists were committing. And they followed the creationist model of communicating with each other, exchanging experiences and ideas, knowledge and research. By the beginning of the 1980's, they were winning the debates and trouncing the creationists. And they were able to oppose creationist laws and local and state efforts to subvert science education. All because they did indeed understand the creationist position, far more fully than the creationists themselves understand it -- those creationists who do finally understand the creationist position most commonly leave creationism and many even start opposing it.
So, Faith, yet again you are dead wrong. We understand the creationist position quite well. Do you understand it?

Re: Another one
The answer is so obvious... Clearly we have to uninvent the gun.
But with 3-D printing, the genie has clearly left the bottle.
