← Two equally bad fallacies

Comment 2 by potteryshard :

My own particular annoyance is that too many times, people consider all opinions equally valid.

Mine is sort of along these lines, but rather it's the belief that opinions have any bearing at all when facts are available. In essence, I don't give a rats ass about how it makes you feel, evolution is a fact, if you don't accept that fact, you're an idiot and don't deserve a place in the conversation. You're opinion has no bearing, my opinion has no bearing. Reasoned argument, supported by logic and evidence is all that matters.

(of course the "you" I refer to is just some generic creationist and not directed at anyone here :))
