Hope this is okay to post here, Nickrz – I’m looking for info, not an argument, so I went with this forum rather than GD.
My nephew came home from the summer visitation with his mother (whom I am trying NOT to call a conspiracy theorist, fundie wacko) a creation scientist. Willy is 14 years old and a pretty smart kid – generally. However, according to my son, he is now spouting the full Duane Gish inspired pantsfull. For instance, he asked Nick, “If we are descended from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys?” Poor Nick (13 years old, and no scientist) KNEW there was an answer, but didn’t know what it was! Nick seems to feel that Willy will eventually bring some of his new opinions to me, and I tend to concurr – Will and I have always had a good relationship and he usually respects my intelligence and scholarship. As a matter of fact, he calls me the “answer aunt!” However, I am also no scientist and for this discussion, I’m gonna need reinforcements. Willy is a strong reader and, as I said, a smart kid, but I don’t think he’s up to Skeptic magazine standards. Does anyone (Dave? E1Skeptic? anyone?) know of a site for kids debunking the usual Creation Science stuff?
