I’m sick of these moronic discussions. People have some nerve. The argument always boils down to:
“The very people who demand undeniable proof from “evolutionists” when faced with a variety of evidence supporting the theory but do not hold themselves to the same standard. Matter of fact, they think their argument is the strongest even though there is zero science to support it.
It must be nice to engage in an argument where your opponent is the only one bound by any burden of proof.
“Academic Freedom” is nothing more that people on the losing side of a debate running to Uncle Sugar and calling foul, like good liberals.
Academic Freedom is nothing more that people on the losing side of a scientific debate running to Uncle Sugar and calling foul, like good liberals. Think "Global Warming". Those guys have piles more evidence to support their notion than young earth creationists.
That’s pretty much it. I sort Creationists with 9-11 Truthers. Really the truth is irrelevant as they’re just trying to shoot down verifiable or plausible theories of what happened in order to shoehorn implausible scenarios. Yea, we’re not sure the exact evolutionary path of man...but we’re damn sure we didn’t pop up out of thin air 6,000 years ago with everything exactly as it is today. Unless you believe in a Trickster God who decided for fun he’d give us a planet that was indistinguishable from one that was hundreds of millions of years old. But then you have to throw out anything not directly verifiable by you because you never know what he’s pulling on you.
