The problem with having an “honest debate” between “evolution” (aka, all of modern biology) and creationism/intelligent-design/whatever is that one side is saying “it’s magic! any evidence to the contrary can be explained by more magic!”, which makes any kind of scientific debate a pointless exercise.
Both sides have their magic. Both of them are pretty much unbelievable. I don’t know why it’s so hard for people to say “We just don’t know?”... Pride maybe? In the end none of it even matters. If you’d devoted your life to either side it’s pretty sad really. What’s the point?
So please explain your pro-life position in scientific terms, Mr. 4 Life guy.
BTW, do you think OH4choice would be a good handle for trolling the DUmpster?
Problem for you is that its the evolution gang that is banking on magic.
Mathematics demolishes evolution right out of the gate; chemistry comes right behind, with 150 years of intense work in an attempt to 'aid' the process of bringing life from non-life, on the back of over 500 billion dollars of funding, without even a glimmer of success.
Meanwhile the 'fossil record' proves itself to be simply the aftermath of the "flood."
You're looking for some powerful magic!
