Moderator On Duty
Since this thread has become active again, I will serve as moderator.

Anyone can now participate in this thread. I'll keep it here in the The Great Debate forum. I'll allow discussion to proceed up to 400 posts before transitioning into summation mode.

Moderators should refrain not only from bias, but also from giving even the impression of bias, but that doesn't mean that when someone dons the moderator role that they must place a veil over their own knowledge and experience. A moderator is far more than just a mechanical enforcer of the Forum Guidelines.

That being said, I have to comment on the irony of exhibiting profound and willful ignorance while taking the con side in a debate about whether there exists a Christian penchant or at least predisposition toward ignorance on topics they find antithetical to their religious beliefs. I'd like to see a serious discussion, and that can't happen while the con side is emphasizing a LOL-style approach.

60 messages before the thread enters summation mode. Maybe you guys could take the current discussion into PMs, unless you can relate it to the topic.

This topic is evolving, Percy.

That's fine, as long as it is micro-evolution, but it looks like macro-evolution to me. The central issue is whether Christian positions on evolution are driven by willful ignorance.
