Why Creationists deserve derision on talk.origins:
(I) They espouse a theory that is clearly false in it's particulars,
(II) which is never stated in a complete form.
(III) They cannot tell that abusing other theories does not
support their theory.
(IV) They frequently lie in their teeth while maintaining a level
of mental incompetence that makes them unaware they are lying.
(e.g. "This isn't a religious theory.")
(V) They will not even attempt to understand arguments against them.
(Occasional exceptions, Cote agree's he isn't going to turn into
a lump of bacteria, oh well.)
(VI) They cling to their sources/interpretations like children to a
favorite toy even when obvious demonstrations are made that their
sources are axe-grinding liars (e.g. the ICR) or that they are
using the sources inappropriatly (e.g. the Bible as demonstrated
by those sharing their faith). Remember the four legged grass-
(VII) They demand respect instead of earning it.
(VIII) Whatever the shit you call what Kalki did when he made the
top ten Usenet poster list for several weeks.
