Chris of Hoaxbusters Call provides an excellent example of how irrational and illogical the Dawkinites truly are. Having had this same debate hundreds of times, the ever-present pattern of ad hominems and countless other instances of informal fallacies are standard. After a few enlightening conversations with the Afternoon Commute I decided Chris’ call to “Atheist Experience” was worth posting. Chris’ deconstruction of their replies is top notch. Their masters at the Royal Society even reveal to them their “science” is state propaganda. -Jay

“But who is a peer? Somebody doing exactly the same kind of research (in which case he or she is probably a direct competitor)? Somebody in the same discipline? Somebody who is an expert on methodology? And what is review? Somebody saying `The paper looks all right to me’, which is sadly what peer review sometimes seems to be. Or somebody pouring all over the paper, asking for raw data, repeating analyses, checking all the references, and making detailed suggestions for improvement? Such a review is vanishingly rare.”
Dr Phil Gingerich Interview About Rodhocetus
“Well, in fact, I really don’t debate. I appear with creationists at public events and on radio and television shows, and sometimes these appearances are called “debates,” but they are not formal debates about evolution of the sort that the Institute for Creation Research or Kent Hovind or the Veritas Forum constantly try to organize. I steer clear of such events, and, again, I recommend that my colleagues follow suit.” -Eugenie Scott
