|Yes i'm quite sure he's attempting the "bury them with bullshit" strategy. Unfortunaly my knowlege of molecular biology is not suffiscient to fight back on even grounds.|
I thought I'd ask a list of basic claims he could make against evolution.
That way I could take hime down one at a time.
Thanks guys your all great!
Remember, the science is well understood.
They MUST support their position. That is all. Remind them and keep reminding them that
"Even if they totally discredit evolution, right now... it still doesn't mean creationism or anything else is correct. Only positive supporting evidence will do that." Then ask them where their positive supporting evidence is. Ask what their research program is. Ask what products their stripe of creationism has produced.
I predict you will be banned in no time.
Then just tell your friend that they obviously can't handle real discussion, therefore you must assume that they have nothing.
I've always liked that approach.
"The Beagle went down with all hands, two days out of port. No survivors. Origins was never published. There's no scientific theory of speciation. Your go, but remember: it has to explain all the data, be testable and repeatable by anyone, anywhere, and make verifiable predictions, backed by positive evidence."
