When will these people realize that there is no way to prove either of their theories one way or the other-- there will never be an end to it.

Just a few questions:
What would qualify as a 'conspiracy' within the confines of this sub-forum now?
Would general discussions of evolution be moved to faith?
Would general discussions on origins be moved to faith?

This is a site which focuses on conspiracy theories and fringe news.
Creationist and fundamentalist establishment Darwinism are not fringe topics or conspiracy theory based so they're getting the boot!
You always toe the establishment line.
The creationists toe a different fundamentalist line. It's pointless and boring to have the same argument with associated name calling and trolling every thread. If it ends now then great.
By following Occam's razor, philosophers of science are likely to oversimplify their understanding of the known universe, increasing the amount of data which they can not explain. And then, typically, philosophers of science become unduly attached to their oversimplifications, and react skeptically to data which they can not explain.
Any time you believe something, any time you identify with a particular explanation, theory, equation, statement, myth, grouping, label, or expectation, you are placing an extra filter between your perceptual systems and the fundamental nature of your reality. Theories are never true, they are merely stories that attempt to explain a selective portion of reality. We create and rely upon theories because they usually work, most of the time, not because they are perfect.
Scientific fundamentalism blinds its adherents in the same way that religious fundamentalism does -- by convincing them that their beliefs are the only correct ones.
