So this is how you debate your points?
No. But pointing out obvious flaws in retards reasoning is fun sometime.

It is too bad that you do not have a brain. You might enjoy it some day.

But sadly the best you can ever do is to post and run away like the little dickless chickenshit that you are.

Right blowfart.

We all know that you are the biggest chickenshit of this forum. You will not debate any point. All you can do is hit and run, with emphasis on the run, posting.

Why won't you debate? Everybody here already knows that you are a brain dead moron. The best use of your head is that of paper weight in a breezy office.

Like we all know that no matter what is said, who said it or who printed it....unless you agree with it or it says what you want it to say, to you it will always be biased and made up lies.

This story is a good example of that. For no matter where you look it up they all say the same thing but to you it is bias.

Why are these people threatened by a debate in a philosophy class?

Wrong my bitch. I have admitted that I have been wrong many times. But denying evolution is almost as ridiculous as denying gravity and I don't think any of the creatards here has ever been significantly right when arguing with me. That is why I keep challenging morons like bohart. You made the idiotic mistake of reading an obviously biased source and treated it as if it were true, rather than checking on the facts.

They aren't. But it is an incredibly foolish place to have such a debate. Philosophers cannot judge if the science is correct or not, they don't have the training. Since creationists have no shame when it comes to lying for Jesus that gives them an apparent edge when it comes to a poorly run debate.

Also there is the fact that it is a state funded school and creationism, in whatever guise it comes in, is a religious belief and not a scientific one. That limits how and where it can be taught.

Every source article says the same thing as boharts. Show me a different article that says different. Show me the facts! Or as they say STFU!

Are you blind or just can't read? It was not going to be a science class. How many times do you have to hear that. It was going to be a philosophy class. You know where you debate about such things as reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, etc..

You would think the atheists, with all their evidence,<<(about evolution) would welcome such a class to debate about reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason and they could do it all against ID. But noooo,, bitchhh and moan and threaten sue. They wanted no part it.

Really? They all say that there was a confrontation that had to be broken up by the police? Or do you forget making that claim?

I could not find any such articles, perhaps you have link to one.

Really, they aren't! is that why they went on a rant to where a police report was made? A college is an incredibly foolish place to have a debate? Where would you have it ,your laundry mat?When in the hell can't a college discuss a religious belief or any kind of belief? You are of the same ilk as those lunatics who freaked out at the thought of a college debate.
You and those nuts are proof of what Ben Stein said,...no intelligence allowed.

Wait, it was not going to be a science class? What sort of idiocy is that? The place to question science is in a science class. You have just admitted that they did not know what the frack they were doing. Thank you replaytime for supporting my claim.

And now you claim it was even worse. You are saying that it was a philosophy class. Did it ever occur to you that philosophers may not have the science background to be able to judge such a discussion?

My bitch, you are the ones complaining. They were wasting state money on religion. That was the problem in a nutshell.

When a creatard argues well enough here to lose the creatard label perhaps you would have a point. Sadly that looks like it will never be the case for you.

Right from the start of this post you lie. Show where anyone said or even where any article said a confrontation had to be broken up by the police.

You have a reading problem. It was in the articles and I stated a police report was filed. BIG difference from police having to break up a confrontation.

Too bad atheists only have the courage to debate from behind a computer screen with a fake name. I call that being a coward. You can call it what you want. The only thing wrong with having that philosophy class and debating is that atheists would have to face people in person with their BS.

This post alone, with the comment "a confrontation that had to be broken up by the police?" shows you are unable to read or you willing lie. Take your pick but you are guilty of one or the other.

It as offered as a class under philosophy , drop your religious shields for a second and really read the article idiot.
I read it. It was written by liars for Jesus, just like you. They claimed ID wasn't a religious concept.

The ends justify the means, apparently.

You guardians of the evo pond are priceless
Except IDC isn't philosophy. It's pseudoscience. Therefore your complaint is already addressed here:

http://www.topix.com/forum/news/evolution/T5V...

Now, if they had been offering a philosophy course on the merits of theology over atheism THEN maybe there wouldn't have been a problem. But since there was suspicion of the teacher using public money to preach anti-science they shut it down. And since that could potentially cost the school upwards of a million bucks I'd say that's a darn good reason.

Oh, and I see you are uh, IGNORING the part where you fundies have been guilty of EXACTLY what you accuse the mean old evo's of doing. Wonder why that is.

It IS biased.

It's a fundie creationist rag that just got caught lying.

Stop blaming us for accusing fundies of being guilty of sin when they're guilty as fecking sin. And the funny part is they're supposed to be worried about what God thinks of them.

Because the teacher couldn't be trusted to be objective.
