[Also] Fully “70 percent of white evangelical Protestants say that life has existed in its present form since the beginning of time.” 63 percent of them are “very certain” that this is true. I must say that there are times when one is rendered speechless. No educated intelligent person could possibly look at the evidence of science and say such a thing. And yet we are supposed to have a reasoned debate with these people on the matter.

I feel exactly the same way. A reasoned debate should require reason.

(And that’s not just snark, saying creationists et al. are unreasonable. In this instance, they are undeniably and purposely avoiding the use of reason.)
