Steve Z says:

I wish that were the case, but I think you are too optimistic. You can't win a battle using reason with people who won't accept reason.


It's still better to have a reasoned argument against your opponent. Even if THEY don't accept it, the watchers may be influenced.

How else do you oppose an argument for the creation of the universe in 6 days except by reason and knowledge based on science?

Yes I know, ridicule has its place, in fact a very good place, but in the end, we must rely on reason.
