Quote of the Day
Creationists make it sound as though a 'theory' is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night.
Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without any proof.
There are many very educated people who are religious, but they're not creationists.
I have a strong feeling that the subject of evolution is beautiful without the excuse of creationists needing to be bashed.
Just as I wouldn't expect a gynecologist to have a debate with somebody who believes in the Stork-theory of reproduction, I won't do debates with Young Earth creationists.
It's always a tough call deciding whether, as a scientist, you should argue publicly with the creationists. It's a dilemma that I encounter frequently in another subject area: Does it make sense to bandy words with someone from the UFO community?
In short, it is not that evolutionary naturalists have been less brazen than the scientific creationists in holding science hostage, but rather that they have been infinitely more effective in getting away with it.
Phillip E. Johnson

Deep down, creationists realize they will never win factual arguments with science. This is why they have construed their own science-like universe, known as Intelligent Design, and eagerly jump on every tidbit of information that seems to go their way.
Frans de Waal
