The Crackpot Invitational
Am I the only commenter who is a bit less than enthused with topics, like Young Earth creationism or denial, that practically invite deniers and creationists, et all, to post? I believe in reasonable inquiry and discussion, but I also doubt the good faith of those who appear on the Boards suddenly and disappear just as quickly. I'm sure someone will exploit my ruminations against me, but there are those here I trust to poke holes in my worthless rants, and those I don't. I enjoy surfing links or googling, but lately I've just been googling some worthless crap just so I don't lend some troll a gap through which to drive a wedge. I accept that knowledge is fallible, but some are here just to settle scores.
Is anyone else feeling this way?
