These are very uneditted and underthought ideas that I get while debating the creation/evolution debate. This is the more-often-updated but less-thought-out version of the crevo blog.

Exercising Proverbs 26:4

Sometimes it's amusing what people come up with for responses to posts. It's sad when people on your own side start making inane comments, but it's amusing to watch others do it. I have a policy of specifically letting such posts stand, because I think they do a much better job of refuting their own stance than I ever could.

Some of my favorite verses are:

Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.

(Proverbs 26:4-5)

Once you know that these are your two options, deciding whether or not to post a response is simple. If posting just makes you part of the "argumentation game" then just shut up, but if you have a point of contention that the other person truly isn't aware of, then speak up.

This is an amusing response I got today. It's from someone who normally speaks intelligently:

There is a creationist model and not just a grab-bag of talking points!!?? Er, no. You mean, "One of the talkiing points is 'All mutations are bad, bad, bad!'"

Have you read the lead article of this thread? Your talking point is wrong, wrong, wrong.

Apparently he was frustrated that creationists actually think and do not just shout off talking points like he wanted them to. He made up a talking point that he wanted me to be spouting off, and then refuted his made-up talking point.

Haha that is funny
