I don't think it's matter of mere technical or political aspects, I think it's important that we distinguish this debate is about and is not about. Because if it's about "evolution", then this debate was over before it started. Evolution of species is fact, and is demonstrated countless times in countless circumstances every day. What is in contention is evolution by natural selection. By analogy, if some came on this forum with a thread called 'Denial of aerodynamic lift', it would be dead in the water. Aerodynamic lift happens - though there is some animated discussion about exactly what principles are involved.
