  1. The debate was no contest. Dr. PZ Myers gave names, places and other facts to support what he was addressing. Dr. Simmons gave nothing more than refutations of that evidence. In a recent blog (http://www.evolutionnews.org/2008/02/dr_geoffrey_simmons_on_his_deb004816.html) He states the following:

    “Other than winning points for outright rudeness and making up fiction, what part of the debate did this tax-paid professor win?”

    Lucky for the listening audience, Dr. Myers gave us things that we can research and examine ourselves. We can do so to see if what he was saying is true or made up fiction, as Dr. Simmons writes. Dr. PZ Myers was nice enough to indulge the foolish notion that evolution is a belief. But should such foolishness be indulged? Why do creationist attack evolution and

    Dr. PZ Myers is well respected and very knowledgeable in the field of biology or cosmology? Why is it that they do not debate the theory of gravity, or the theory of relativity, or E=MC ? They do not bother with those because the fact of those sciences do not disprove their silly concept of a creator god. They blindly believe that evolution is a theory in the non-scientific sense of the word. They refuse to accept (in light of the facts) that evolution is as real as the science of gravity. To put this in perspective, it is just as laughable as trying to convince an ancient Greek that thunder and lighting are not created by their god Zeus.
