There Wasn't Much To Debate In What You Said

scientific debate is different than other kinds of debates....it doesn't matter as much in science how you play to the crowd...and while it's fun to read how the creationist school kids found an allosaurus, it was irrelevant to science when Phillips said,"I'm sure the evolutionists would like to get their hands on these bones."
This kind of statement illustrates the "us vs. them" atmosphere that is more present in the creationist than the evolutionist camp, in my experience. While a paleontologist is in the field, I think there's no particular desire to prove creation theories wrong. Someone would have to be pretty weird to be thinking about proving creation theories wrong, since there is so little content in them anyway. They never say How it was done...they just claim to know who did it. Science just keeps plodding along, trying to see how things occur.
Sorry if this isn't the kind of debate you wanted. I'm a bore, aren't I?

Cordially,
Mike
