Why Creationists deserve derision on talk.origins: (I) They espouse a theory that is clearly false in it's particulars, (II) which is never stated in a complete form. (III) They cannot tell that abusing other theories does not support their theory. (IV) They frequently lie in their teeth while maintaining a level of mental incompetence that makes them unaware they are lying. (e.g. "This isn't a religious theory.") (V) They will not even attempt to understand arguments against them. (Occasional exceptions, Cote agree's he isn't going to turn into a lump of bacteria, oh well.) (VI) They cling to their sources/interpretations like children to a favorite toy even when obvious demonstrations are made that their sources are axe-grinding liars (e.g. the ICR) or that they are using the sources inappropriatly (e.g. the Bible as demonstrated by those sharing their faith). Remember the four legged grass- hoppers? (VII) They demand respect instead of earning it. (VIII) Whatever the shit you call what Kalki did when he made the top ten Usenet poster list for several weeks.
