Often very difficult to include subtlety, sarcasm, or nuance in an email! I have been guilty of misinterpreting comments and I know that my own have sometimes been misinterpreted! But sam is right. Contest is a fool's game, certain to have a built-in xtian bias or a set of goalposts that science cannot reach! "Show an example of a current species becoming a different species", for example. "Prove that life began by natural processes". And on and on. A fool's bet.

Of coarse I was talking about the guy who's posing the challenge. I understood TC3's point completely. However, I could have pointed out that the challenge is not going to be held by a regular court, according to the article. Which leads me to believe that there will be some christian bias in the challenge. Therefore, I went with have fun disproving radiometric dating. Sorry for misleading you Randy. Ahhh, the English language is so delicate.

I hope you are right Linas. But the context in which Sam made the comment led me to conclude he was referring to TC3 and not the moron who proposed the challenge. However, if I am wrong I gladly stand corrected. Only Sam can clear up whatever misunderstanding, if any, I have here.

Randy,

Why are you accusing him of calling TC3 a douchebag?  I think Sam is referring to the guy proposing the challenge!

Sam,

Why are you calling him a douchebag? I think TC3 is making the point that the evolution side will win and collect the $10,000, hence TC3's reference to the Kitzmiller v. Dover case and link to the page on the National Center for Science Education website describing 10 court cases in which evolution prevailed over creationism.
