Creationism is not dead. It's an idea from a book and it will not die. We still have the Flat Earth Society, remember. It's simply a thought, a story.
Creationism and Flat Earth cannot be compared to evolution. The first are thoughts. Evolution is science. There is no science whatsoever involved in the other two. Comparing them is like comparing gravity to garden fairies.

Creationism started dying nearly two hundred years ago when the knowledge of Geology began to tear down the dogma.
I stopped debating E vs C ten years ago as the C's had run out of anything interesting to say other than, E would die so and didn't work and God did it.
Is C dead? No and I suspect it will continue on for many generations, becoming more and more isolated, denial bound, marginalized, laughed at until, many generations from now, it will becomes an odd little cult and a footnote to history.
How are you defining creationism?
he still thinks that the other side of creation is evolution

I agree but at least your are not over simplifying something into magical monkeys.
For the record i am not a staunch evolution believer just was taken back by that comment
Eta: you kinda are over simplifying things with the magic cell containing all the dna for all life. While yes it is kinda true what you are saying, still a rather simplification of the theory.
My biggest prob with creationism is the 6000 year timeline. Not saying you all subscribe to that but just don't see how people can stick to that
is definition of what he considers Creationism was lacking clarity
