FCB, a little warning, because I see where this thread is headed.Originally Posted by Falls City Beer
The position the hardcore creationists will return to over and over and over again is the "holes" in evolutionary theory, which in their mind discredit all research/evidence compiled on the subject, leading to a conclusion that creationism *must* be the correct answer.
You can try arguing with reason, you can try arguing with facts, you can try arguing with observational evidence, but the response will be consistently the same: evolution can't be sceintifically "proved", therefore it *must* be invalid, because I interpret it to be at odds with my interpretation of Genesis. Creationists mistake religion for science (see the drive to have ID taught in science classes) consistently, no more so than in the evolution "debate".
So, whilst it is noble to fling around facts, evidence, and the logical position that if 99% of scientists believe that species-to-species macro evolution in some form occured on Earth it is a good reason for believing that it is true...it's not going to get you very far.
