I don't see anything wrong with a good, clean debate... as long as it remains clean.
No one should be here to throw dirt on anyone elses beliefs, regardless of what they are.
It's a topic relevant to our existance... and a mighty fun one at that. When you go right back to the beginning, there's no proof to support either theory. So it's not as though one side can defeat the other...
Be that as it may - mankind is not the product of evolution, it is a by-product and as such, the universe will not miss us if we screw up and get cleared out of the gene pool (I imagine a huge strand of DNA on a high seat blowing a whistle, shouting "everyone out of the pool").
Perhaps we are just the most successful viruses to date :P
internet evolution/ID "debates" are always just a big circle jerk. the only difference is sometimes one side has the bigger circle, sometimes its the other.
you haven't uncovered anything new. i remember the heyday of TAMU's Internet Infidels, talk.origins USENET, and Church of the Subgenius. I, too, thought i was quite clever, but 15 years later I see nothing has changed.
what I'm saying is, you might as well go debate abortion at a Catholic Grandmother's Quilting Bee. Because your persuasive use of logic and reason and scientific methods, will have you just as likely to convince someone that their position is indeed wrong, and that they need to come over to your side.
truth is: i still have issues, and i'm exceedingly frustrated by this subject
especially by the paradoxical fact that i live in the most technologically-advanced country, which seems to be always on the verge of being taken over by a bunch of superstitions chicken bone shakers.:(
