Ya mean sorta like the general public views evols?
I ain't got no dog in this hunt but it impresses me that evols are not only defensive about a position that they claim has no foundation and are often downright abusive about it. That ain't no way to win a battle considering that the majority of American's think evolution is full of holes.
Might I suggest that another approach is to calmly and without invective explain the position rather than use words like "cult", "ignorant", "bible thumpers", "knuckle draggers", "cousin marrying", et al. All of which I have seen used to describe those that question any aspect of the ToE.
Just a thought of course. If evols want to continue to insult those they wish to convince by all means, that is certainly the way to go.
But then that's the way the ACLU usually operates so I guess it's just business as usual.
Going to the "general public" for views on science is like going to a chef for open heart surgery: NOT QUALIFIED.
Exactly one-half of the population of America has an IQ of 100 or less. And, even if the majority believe in space aliens and ghosts...should we let those who are uneducated and unqualified dictate the course of science?
Evols realize that Creationist IDealogues have demonstrated by their refusal to either defend or abandon discredited arguments that they are not open to convincing .
Ergo Plan B: "To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women."
