The problem is that no amount of philosophy, education, rational discussion, or even fresh baked cookies will end this debate. It will take these things combined with time.

How can someone like Hovind, Ham, or Comfort stand there and deny evolution? These men are not without access to the truth. They have been told the truth time after time. They don't care. And I would wager neither do most of their followers. So long as they have a comfort zone of fellow believers, they refuse to listen.

The only answer is to pick them off, one by one, growing our side as quickly as we shrink theirs. That is to say, you are that philosopher you hope for. For every mind you get to question, you help break the mirror.

By the way? Philosophy 101 is a joke. You'll need it to move on, but if you've spent much time on this site, you'll be amazed at how stupid much of "Great Western Thought" is (God must exist because I can imagine him).
