"Let's see, RWP is an actual working scientist who actually produces science results and publishes them."
So RWP and others who derive their income from "producing science results" have more to loose than just a debate.
Let us loose the dogs of debate.
That's 'lose'. My current project is building detectors for terrorist explosives. Explain to me how evolution impinges that? (Other than the fact the Islamic lunatics have the same antiscientific creationist beliefs as Christian fundamentalists. Isn't it interesting that if we lost all the creationists in the world, there wouldn't be a problem with Islamic terrorism either?)
OMG, RightWingProfessor, Coyoteman, furball4paws.... we have been found out!! That Amish with an attitude really saw right through us!!! Oh, Drat!!
Creationist / ID notion of "scientific" evaluation of research proposals:
Proposal 1: OK, guys, this guy has some publications to his name. Well, that is one strike against him. And look here, his last experiment actually worked and produced results. Well, golly, this doesn't look too good. Oh, no. Look here, he has a Ph.D in Physics. Well, let's trash this one. Who is this bozo anyway??? Must be a (gasp) Darwinist.
Proposal 2: Well, this proposal certainly looks better. Look here, absolutely no publications. That't more like it. And look here, he as never done any research that actually worked. Oh, he tried demonstrating rock halos from Polonium. Well, that really failed. OK, looking good. We like those failures. Oh, this cinches it: he got is masters degree from a mail order house and his Ph.D from the Discovery Institute. Can't ask for better credentials than that. Let's give this one buckets of money!!!
