In an evolution vs creation debate, have you managed to open the other person's mind?
Or have you ever converted (hate that word) someone?

One thing I have mentioned to people that is very mind opening/blowing is as follows:
If you take a glass of water and add a few cubes of ice to it, the water level rises... right?
and if you remove the cubes, the water level decreases.
If you took every living thing out of the ocean, wouldn't the water level decrease? So is the planet really three quarters water?
Estimated 50-70% of living things on earth lives in the ocean. I would say that would be a tremendous decrease in water level.
Why did no one take into consideration the volume of living things in the ocean when calculating the amount of water on earth?

Yes, I have changed peoples views.
If you understand the fundermentals of the physical form or matter, it is quite easy actually.
With the bible written and other religious texts to produce faith in ones spirit with the internal positive energy of your Mind, Heart & Soul (+) giving you your spirit. This is why Jesus died on this symbol for all humans.
Externally, everything on Earth is known as Satans domain in knowledge through learning due to the fact that every living thing from plants, animals and humans are all externally made of Fire. The three elements in Fire are Fuel, ( Food ), Heat, ( Hot & Cold ), & Oxygen. Fire has a burning effect when physically touched which is the negative energy of the physical world and this is what happens to us externally in life. This is why every assosiation world wide is formed on a triangular structure. Kings, Queens, Presidents, Primeministers, Captains ect lead from the top and are followed by the general public underneath them. The top guiding for direction as a figure head while the bottom supports the top in labour.
Reverse Live and you recieve Evil, Reverse Lived and you recieve the Devil. Reverse God and you recieve Dog meaning loyal companion.
Humans are living batteries on Earth of negative and positive energy! The Positive of different religions and faith in eachothers spirit has assisted eachothers culture like familys which have got humans to where we are today.
This is why it's considered the 3rd Dimension!

Yes, and that person suddenly saw the ridiculousness in her religious beliefs. She then said something that, in my opinion, is how most religious people feel.
I said to her, "Do you honestly believe that there is an ALLL-knowing, ALLLL-powerful, inVISible being, who created the WHOLE universe, and who lives in another dimension called heavennnnn?"
Her eyes went wide, as though a band-aid had been suddenly ripped from her brain. She then said, "But I HAVE to believe." With that statement comes the unspoken words: "even though I know it isn't true."
