Re: It's not science, imo
What the fuck…are you kidding, take any bio course in any college and tell me where the evangelistic side is at. Sorry to say but there is no missionary work with the TOE, it is taught like cell bio or genetics…the teacher presents the facts and you go to the next subject.

Just because there is this great controversy among the general public and the religious zealots doesn’t mean there is much of one with people who have taken such subjects, I’m sorry but there is no way you are going to learn the same information on a subject just by reading a website as oppose to studying it.


You wanna be, uhh, blunt about what has taken place, sometimes when you don't measure, you just shuffle kids through. Then you wake up at the high school level and find out that the illiter -- literacy level of our children are appalling.

Re: It's not science, imo
Creationist website? As I said, do you or don’t you have a formal education in any of the sciences?

If someone wanted to know the difference between Human T-Lymphotropic Virus Types I&II, are they going to look at webMD or go to a doctor with a little better understanding of the disease? I’m not saying debate or discussion is a bad thing...but to continually assert knowledge on a particular subject when that knowledge comes from one source i.e. Creationist websites gets frustrating.

So now you present a blatant argument from authority with no substance or details, and you think that is reasonable?
You also refer to a mythical creationist website not cited by me here. Are you drunk or something?
:laugh:

Blatant argument from authority, Where?…I was trying to show you what someone’s knowledge of a subject can do for there understanding of said subject…and what mythical website did I attribute to you? Creationist website was a reference to all websites like AIG or ICR that your type of arguments can be found at.
