sapere_aude

I would like to take on a very educated person on this subject, but who can be very down to earth so other people can understand this debate. I am taking the side of creationism....

First Round acceptance only. This should be an interesting debate....

I am issuing this as an open challenge to anyone with interest in arguing from a different position. Before we begin, I would like to clarify the terms, namely that: Morality - What we consider to be right or wrong Secularism - actions and thinking that are derived from a non-religious standpoint. Whoever decide...
