ITT: How to lose all credibility in just one easy step!

There goes the credibility.

He's technically correct (for once). There is no way to prove Creationism scientifically since it is unfalsifiable. Creationists should stop destorting science and just go with their faith.
(As long as they keep it to themselves, of course)
10/17/2008 8:50:13 PM
I dunno, I think he may mean not to debate, since they really believe creationism is science
10/17/2008 9:02:49 PM
Creationists, in my opinion, need to suspend science when it comes to debating Creationism
So he finally admits that creationism isn't science. So why do fundies continue to insist it should be taught in science class?
10/17/2008 9:04:33 PM
And replace it with what? Chocolate pudding? How can you "debate" anything without a logical framework and some reference to verifiable facts about reality?
... Or do you just mean, "Swallow our ludicrous assertions without question, or we'll denounce you for being 'unfair?' "
10/17/2008 9:10:25 PM
Of course, creationists can only lose if they try to use science in debates about creationism ;)

Is it me or did AV1611VET just actually make a bit of sense?
10/17/2008 9:13:48 PM
Creationists already suspend thinking, so why not?
10/17/2008 9:52:25 PM
"Creationists, in my opinion, need to suspend science when it comes to debating Creationism; no matter how educated they are."
Obviously you need to suspend science because creationism simply isn't science! Science has never argued for creationism and never will, simply because no evidence for it has been displayed.
10/17/2008 10:01:39 PM
Umm..I thought thats what they already did?
So I would be correct in assuming that you do not want Creationism or Intelligent design taught in science class?
Oh, yeah, you're just bullshitting some more. Gotta do everything to get teachers into the job of converting kids for Jesus now.
10/17/2008 10:09:04 PM
And there goes your credibility.

"Is it me or did AV1611VET just actually make a bit of sense? "
Not if you read the full post:
That's because the Creation had nothing to do with science. In fact, science hadn't even been created yet.
Think about it --- if you define science as the observation of the natural universe, then science didn't even come about until Day Six, with Adam - (unless you claim the angels engaged in science before that).
Creationists, in my opinion, need to suspend science when it comes to debating Creationism; no matter how educated they are.

We're still having trouble with the suspend mode, but hope to include it in the release version of Science 2.0.
10/17/2008 11:05:21 PM
Suspend science from what? Using what? And will anyone be willing to help?
10/17/2008 11:17:38 PM
AV, welcome back.

Educated? Bwahahahahahaha! He said educated!
10/17/2008 11:59:37 PM
Actually he's right, there is no science to support creationism, so anybody that tries to argue for creationism has to ignore science.

I'll take "Shooting Yourself in the Foot" for $500, Alex.
10/18/2008 12:27:39 AM
And that's why nobody takes you seriously...
10/18/2008 12:29:39 AM
You're right - science just gets in the way of fairy tales.
10/18/2008 1:36:28 AM
How to lose without even putting up a fight.

Who needs education (in any field) when you have Creationism.
Try reading the bible in the original Amarahic (predating Old Hebrew) which I can - fluently - then make the same comment.
Of course, the original bible was written on used toilet paper in 1611, wasn't it.
