Welcome to a debate forum
Whining will not endear you to anyone here.
If you cannot defend what you post, don't post it.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Well we will simply have to agree to disagree...
Just some advice. That is a terrible response. Makes you sound like a troll or a creo. As I said before, if you can't defend your posts then don't post to a debate site.
Is that what you are going to say to your professor when he examines your paper?

That's nonsense.
What is nonsense is you and he thinking that people shouldn't be criticizing and pointing out flaws in his argument.
The purpose of a site like this is to debate, not "agree to disagree".
That is just plain stupid.
My guess is that the professor is already aware of the assignment and doesn't need to be convinced of the value of the questions Kevin is posing.
You assume a lot. I would think the professor would want the premise and paper to be defended. If not people could write any old bullshit and say well "lets agree to disagree".

What argument are you pointing out a flaw in?
If you are not following the thread why are you posting responses.
You seem to have decided to pick a fight with me so I responded. I don't want a fight but I will defend my posts.
What is the premise that hasn't been defended?
Again maybe you should follow the thread.
If you were following you would see that I was telling him that to post
Well we will simply have to agree to disagree...
Is a cop out and has no place in a board like this or as an answer for his senior paper.
If you want a fight go someplace else please. If you don't agree with me fine, just go swing your dick elsewhere.

Re: Theology
But there are some folks here who are lashing out at Kevin at the mere mention of him holding interests in science that don't align with their own.
Could you please point out examples of this?

Re: Theology
These are just opinions and value judgments that Kevin is throwing around.
They aren't for anyone to debate because opinions don't matter.
Well since you seem to be in his brain and know his intentions, why did he boast to a discussion board if he did not want any feedback?
Isn't this a discussion forum a debate site. If opinions don't matter why do you bother coming here?

I fully agree that the history of science is absolutely fascinating and a very rewarding journey. In fact, I think most people here would agree as well.
Heartily agree. I have been reading about and studying the history of Science for over 30 years and have barely scratched the surface.
