WTF? What is the point of debating a comic, no matter what your side of the issue. Bill Mahr would give about as much credibility to the debate as Bill Clinton gives to an abstinence program.

Hey, why don't we have a plumber and an aspiring actress debate cold fusion? You know, just to settle the issue once and for all...

Maher's a cretin.
Might as well ask Alec Baldwin. Or Letterman. All Demo-stooges.

I don't know, but the line in the article about man evolving from the chicken to explain Maher's unwillingness to present his case is pretty good.

This would be like watching Bill Clinton and Hugh Hefner debate safe sex.

This brings back memories of the classic Charles Lindburgh/Soupy Sales roman architecture debates that so enthralled intellectual societies in the fourties.

Maybe Maher can explain how he evolved a nose the size of a small armadillo.

This is the same guy that tried to prove God exists by showing how a banana is perfectly shaped to fit into a human's hand, how it has the sides for grip, how it opens perfectly, etc etc etc. He claimed that the banana is 'the atheist's nightmare.'

Somehow I think this debate would be hilarious! Quite literally it would be bananas! I wonder if the whole 6,000 year old Earth debate would pop up.

Here is a link to the banana 'proof:'

Au contraire -- this is proof OF Evolution. Just like some forms of animals did not evolve (at least into Homo Sapiens), some forms of pond scum didn't either.

Not sure this is worth the time:

1. Weekly World News as the source
2. The Flat earthers are already here and making their usual phht and gurgling noises
3. Bill Maher?

But a courtesy ping to you nonetheless.

Doesn't it take some measure of intelligence to debate intelligent design? That would automatically disqualify Maher...

I assure you, theories cannot be verified.

You need to learn what a "theory" is.

and even watching something drop to the floor is not verification of anything.

Micro-evolution has been observed.

Gravity can NOT be tested and repeated.

Cool. Someone please post the peer-reviewed journal articles so I can read them. I mean, Intelligent Design adherent assure me this stuff is pure science, so surely scientific work of such incredible moment as to debunk a 150 year-old paradigm must have a huge amount of research surrounding it in the scientific community, so there must be some journal articles by this guy about that research. Right? Bueller? Bueller??

Oh, wait. I see this is an article from WorldNut Daily. Nevermind. I wonder how they keep getting their articles posted to their website. The mental institution is supposed to have a firewall to prevent that sort of thing.

I see you specialize in non sequiters.

Ask a question that makes sense AND respond to my statement that pretty much wiped out your entire line of what passes in somce circles as "argumentation" and I may answer.

But you have some pretty serious shoring up to do first (actually impossible but it is always fun to watch your type try).

Well put. Just like there are COUNTLESS examples of transitional species proving beyond question evolutionary theory. I mean besides the "fuzzy" bird that is, well, a bird.

I'm no fan of evolution by any stretch, but Mr. Comfort needs to pick on someone his own size. Arguing with someone as uneducated and absurd as Bill Maher is like picking on the mentally challenged kid next door.

Sheesh.

A chid of 12 can smash ID with the basic facts. This will make Maher look much smarter than he is.

Tell me; I'm open. How did a unicellular life form "evolve" in to a human being by way of random genetic variation and some sort of natural selection etc. etc. Have you observrd the process? OR DO YOU TAKE IT ON SOMEBODY ELSE'S SAY-SO?
