It is true that I like the great debate. It is the way I have learned
enough to be able to have one patent in the pipeline and another in
process. The ability to put various pieces of knowledge together can be

As to turning people around, I can now count at least 4 people I have
influenced to give up YEC there. And I know one person who is wavering.
Another person is beginning to rethink ID. The discussion is worth it.
If no one fights for our religion and we let the YECs win, shame on us.

No it is not a waste. The ASA members are letting the atheists do most
of the talking about science over there. One or two are there--Burgy,
Roger Olson, Michael Roberts, but they are the exception. If the
atheists win converts then shame on us. The apathy I see here about
actually fighting for a rational viewpoint disappoints me. It would
appear that in general the atheists are more devoted to their cause than
we are. I know, everyone will say I once again write intemperately.
