Let me make this clear here.. It's not acceptable in general context for any side.. And this isn't an argument to excuse its usage. Right now the
creationist movement is largely similar to that which happened in Afghanistan regarding the destruction of the education system. And it's also an arm
of the movement to install a religious theocracy here in the United states. Yes the very same type of arguments and dishonesty to distort American
history to appear to be founded on Christianity and how the US is a Christian nation to where freedom of religion only applies to their religion.. Do
please tell us why I should respect that kind dishonesty to support an ideology that is growing to become a very destructive element of this country?
note: this isn't a generalizing statement.. it's addressing those who are, not those who aren't..

because: (no reason given)
My point is that I feel both sides are the same.
Everything that you believe is wrong with the creationist side of the debate, may have some foundation.
However, it is true that your side of the debate is guilty of the same exact behavior.
If you cannot admit to the fact your side plays very dirty often times, and is very quick to stoop to ridicule, than you are in complete denial I am
That's why I prefer the more neutral approach, because it allows me to see clearly the unfair behavior exhibited by both sides of the argument.
I myself have tested this hypothesis and questioned directly both creationists and evolutionists, and both will respond in a hostile format at least
half of the time if not more.
The details of the subject matter little at this point because the parameters of the debate have become completely improper and unprofessional. There
is no fair debate very often anymore, rather we are faced with a mud-slinging fest over who is "intellectually superior" and who is not. It's all
irrelevant to the terms of the debate topic itself, however it's prevalence has destroyed any real credibility that either side of the discussion may
have had originally.
