Alas, as much as this sounds like a grand battle of wit and skill - of which Ogre is without question significantly more endowed - we all know how this will actually go. There is no way to score points with someone who won't stay on topic - see Gish, Morris, Bahnsen, Craig, etc...But far worse is the impossibility that is a debate with someone incapable of even pretending, nevermind actually recognizing, there is a topic - see Joe. †Joe has no concept of what the statements he posts actually mean, nevermind what anyone else posts.
It's funny to recognize when someone is just plain inanely wrong, but Joe - Joe's comments attain the level of so-far-out-in-left-field-they're-not-even-wrong. And THAT'S when he isn't cursing or tossing out kindergarten insults. †

I wish you the best of fun, Ogre, but there's no point in wishing you good luck given the set outcome of this event.
ETA - fixed the confusion I'm having among folks who's names begin with "O"...
we IDists rule in design for the flagellum and cilium largely because they do look designed. †Bilbo
