Not the slightest chance when every few days we get the repeated mantra of
"Scientifically Vacuous" rammed down our throats. There is one thing I know
well, and that is that Pim thinks ID is scientifically vacuous, because he
must have told us so about 150 times!

It's about time both sides started listening to each other instead of making
insulting statements.

In the "Time" debate that was posted in another thread, Collins gently
chided Dawkins for describing creationists as "clowns" and pointed out that
he wasn't doing his cause any good by using language like that. We should
also take heed.
