See, This is Why the Evolution vs. Creationism Debate is a Bad Idea

It leads to headlines like this one on the front page of today’s Cincinnati Enquirer:

Bible! Science! Who will win?

But there are a few problems with that attention-getting text:

  1. Millions of Christians will tell you they don’t have to choose between one or the other, and that even includes Ken Ham who ignorantly considers Creationism to be legitimate science.
  2. This debate will not settle the question.
  3. Even if we grant the premise that religion and science are in a battle, then science has already won. We know that because when the two go head-to-head, evidence-based reasoning always beats faith-based anything. One well-publicized debate’s not going to change that fact.

Enjoy the publicity, Ken Ham. From a PR-perspective, you’ve outdone yourself with this event.
