A forum dominated by creationists

Possibly the finest collection of heads up asses you will ever find.

Evo's critiquing evo messages
What I see at EvC is that it is reason, logic and evidence that lead the way. If someone says something that is wrong they will be called on it regardless of which side of the debate they are on. Science has a self-correcting mechanism that works by praising those who find mistakes instead of castigating them for their descent. I don't think there is anyone here who would not welcome another dissenting opinion. The whole point here is to see how your opinions hold up.

My bolding.

Repeating:

If someone says something that is wrong they will be called on it regardless of which side of the debate they are on.

My impression is that the evo side should nit-pick others of the evo side a little more. Personally, I think the creo side members are dog-piled enough without me also commenting, and thus I try to focus more on questioning evo side replies (especially in geology themes, my "area of expertise").

My examples (link text is message subtitle):

Nice graphic, but the text is rather bogus - My Sept. 6, 2013 reply to Catholic Scientist at the "Which animals would populate the earth if the ark was real?" topic.

A bit of trangression error from the evo side - My Oct. 10, 2013 reply to Granny Magda at the "Which animals would populate the earth if the ark was real?" topic.

The Kaibab sediments vs. deep ocean basin sediments - My April 17, 2014 reply to Tanypteryx at the "Why is evolution so controversial?" topic. This led to the creation of the new topic "Depositional Models of Sea Transgressions/Regressions - Walther's Law".

Percy bogusity from message 400 and 412 - My April 20, 2014 reply to Percy at the "Why is evolution so controversial?" topic.

So, the question is, does the evo side adequately critique the evo side (oslt)?
