In search of an interesting argument

While I am a firm supporter of evolution, I do very much like to see things like Answers in Genesis' list of arguments that they'd prefer creationists not use. All of them are good advice. And I do note a very open support for the principles of science, the idea that theory != conjecture, and the grudging admission that previously-held arguments can be (and have been) proven wrong. By science.

The sad subtext of this list, though, is that these blatantly fallacious arguments are still in common use by Biblical creationists. And they're so common, and so bad, that a fellow creationist had to step in and say, "Hey man. You're embarassing us."

Oy.
