On your list of reasons why you post, surely you forgot, 'because it's fun'.

Also naive optimism. I have this dream that someone - even if it is only one person - who comes here supporting creationism or ID will, when it is pointed out that trying to persuade us to abandon the tested work of generations of biologists based on their personal opinion of science and an old book, realises how deeply arrogant and embarrassing that is (I get embarrassed just reading their posts), and they say "Oh dear! I do look a twit, don't it? Terribly sorry to bother you".

Perhaps if those who post here don't, the message may get across to others who don't. Even if they don't change their minds, they may actually realise it is a good idea to shut up.
