    We need some pre-show entertainment! Jim, could you perhaps draw a sketch for us of, let's say, vs. 2 of Genesis chapter 1?

    I hope that Hilston sticks to the biomolecular machinery of the cell, and the implausibility of genetic mutations creating novel, complex, functionally guided structures. That's where the heaviest hits to Darwinian evolution lie.

    It's tragic, really. One would expect the farce of Darwinian evolution to have died in a "scientifically enlightened" culture such as ours. But on the nature of willful ignorance and the pride of men, see The Bible (e.g. John 3:19-21, Romans 1:18-32, etc.)

    I predict KO by Round 4. Knock 'em dead, Hilston!

    Race fans, now hear this. Hilston doesn't disappoint! He has heard the cry for pre-show entertainment and has delivered a masterpiece worthy of mention in any Bible liner notes.

    Unveiled today, for the first time in the history of TheologyOnline's extensive art collections is

    Genesis 1:2by James Hilston

    If this isn't a clue as to how literally Hilston takes the Bible, then nothing is.

    Enjoy!

    I'm looking forward to this debate:

    CREATIONISM / ID: Science or Science Fiction?
    The Bush Lies:
    "When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so."

    "Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised."

    If this is the debating line Hilston is going with, it will kill the debate. Either Stratnerd will not respond , or he will and the topic will veer off from the subject of science, and go in to Biblical inerrancy, or Biblical critisism. Both options don't bode well..

    If they do stay on topic though, Hilston has his work cut out for him. A simple definition of what science is (an explanatory utility), and what a scientific theory is, should quickly explain where evolution and ID/creationism fall. Even if you do believe in a young earth creation, it is hard to call it science. This line will at least keep it interesting, with lots of pseudo-scientific notions

    Having just recently "met" Mr. Hilston via email, I can honestly say that however he approaches the debate, the approach will be a thorough one indeed.

    I, too, am looking forward to it.

    I don't see see why. You must already know that evolution is nothing more than an atheistic leap of faith!

    This comment was made in regards to Stratnerd, he states he is agnostic not atheist, just felt the need to clarify.

    CREATIONISM / ID: Science or Science Fiction?
    I'm still quite interested in why the debate, which originally was focused on the scientific validity of creationism, has now been flipped so that the focus is now on evolution.

    I'm interested to see if hilston comes out swinging at the philosophy of science, or at evolution itself. He might take a dual approach. I'm also interested to see if Hilston will take the the "overwhelming with questions" tactic wherein so many questions are posted that it is unreasonable to answer each. Thus, an appearance of victory is achieved for lack of complete answers to all the questions. I'm hoping he will be above that. Nonetheless, this should be a fascinating debate as long as they don't get caught up in the philosophy of science, which I am not as interested in.
