The fact that you are equating intelligence with a stance on a social issue is ludicrous. There is no correlation between intelligence an political stance. There are intelligent and moronic people on both sides of every issue.

Actually the most educated segments of the population are most likely to not believe in the myth of creationism

Either Way, you lose, and i proved the point that people just accept these debates and don't read them.

Con

No you proved that you are not able to defend your argument, so you trick people into making you look smart. In reality you are not intelligent, you just pressed enter multiple times so I couldn't see your trap. I was looking forward to having a constructed debate with you, but you aren't able to act like a mature human being, proving that in fact you are wrong. Hopefully you will realize issues can't be resolved by fooling people. I am actually new to this site, and i was hoping idiots like yourself wouldn't ruin this academic center.

If you were smart, you would have noticed that the scroll bar was tiny, and that there was more text to read. I WIN!!

Con

If you were a man you would have argued on principal not folly.

If you were a smart man you would not have agreed. Good luck with your future debates, sorry that you were the victim of proving a point.

I'm sorry too, that people think setting traps like this prove points they simply don't. We should hold ourselves to a code of ethics that make us men not children.

The Pro lost once he posted this debate. You don't judge people's wisdom by what religion they believe in. Indians have been brilliant mathematicians and they believe in creationism (you're using Arabic number-their numbers right now). Some scientists believe in creationism. I wouldn't call these people stupid at all, and I doubt that you are smarter than them.

I actually thought that no one was dumb enough to take this. I had it set to 0 wins and an ELO higher than mine as the criteria, but i don't know why that didn't prevent PATTON.

I get that people are dumb with upholding framework, but c'mon tmar, you don't need to be a troll to get your point across. All you're doing is being a dick and potentially shunning a debater from this site.

I did not scroll, because i didn't think these childish games took place among the educated.

"Plus, if Pro wants to talk about intelligence, he apparently isn't smart enough to realize that there are different facets of Creationism, including Old Earth Creationism, which teaches that the universe is approximately 14.7 billion years old, but rejects Evolution due to the numerous problems with the position." neither can be proven

I'm a Creationist, and I was smart enough to scroll all the way down to the bottom.
