Re: more monkey business...or...gorilla gal (anyman)

The only way you can substantiate the creationist point of view is to talk in generalities and simplifications. The only way you can do it is to use general media sources and quotations as your “evidence” (eg, your CNN link). The only way you can do it is to throw up conspiracy theories.

Your creationist theories fall down when actual evidence is discussed. Anyone who knows anything about science knows that what any individual person says to the media about this skull (or any other piece of science) is irrelevant because for scientists the data speaks for itself. So this is why creationists will generally avoid discussion of actual data at all costs, or simply just leave the thread when specifics arise and claim further down the track that they dealt with this topic and won the debate.

You’re absolutely right that you are under no obligation to present and discuss raw data in your posts. But for someone to continually condemn an existing and established paradigm without ever discussing specifics makes you look rather foolish. I'm just trying to get you to act like a scientist rather than someone from sales and marketing. Still, you do make it interesting around here. :)
