You're dealing with Stanch Atheists. Don't expect them to be rational or intelligent. They've gone tribal, circled the wagons, and are now locked into anti-religious flame wars and are unable to learn better.

Isn't painting with broad stokes fun! There's surely no actual rational, intelligent creatures in these enormous labels!

Nothing. So why did you claim that Evolution does not make falsifiable predictions?

I was speaking tongue-in-cheek about the religion of evolution, not the science of evolution. Certainly, scientifically speaking, evolution has falsifiable predictions; not that it matters to the zealots.

That's not my experience at all [ ... ] It's not like there's much to teach regarding creationism in any case, from a scientific point of view.

You contradict yourself. You seem to believe by faith that there is no substantive research possible toward creationism.

Tens to hundreds of thousands of scholars throughout the ages have devoted considerable portions of their lives in the study of God and creationism, yet secular scholars of today refuse to even examine the evidence or even acknowledge its existence.

Religious absurdity ... failure to think ... discredited archaic beliefs ... utterly deranged wingnut ... alternate-reality

I'm always amazed that those who would consider themselves "quality thought-leaders" need to resort to name-calling to discuss evolution. It's no different than the Slate article; why bother with facts when propaganda will do?

As a creationist with a scientific background, I don't have a problem with either Evolution per se or abiogenesis per se. Science is merely observing and attempting to explain with a best-fit model what is seen -- what's wrong with that?

Instead, I have a problem with the religion of Evolution/abiogenesis and the battle of its priests against the church. I'm not claiming all or even most scientists fall into this realm, but the vast majority of the vocal anti-creationism crowd certainly does.

One way to make your old car run better is to look up the price of a new model.
