Creationist $10,000 offer

Postby vms » Tue Mar 26, 2013 9:59 pm

A California man who believes the literal interpretation of the Bible is real is offering $10,000 to anyone who can successfully debunk claims made in the book of Genesis in front of a judge.

And for a man wanting to debate the very nature of human existence, Joseph Mastropaolo is taking a decidedly happy-go-lucky approach, saying he hopes the contest will improve future discussions on both sides of the argument

They would then jointly agree on a judge based on a list of possible candidates.

The question is who comes up with the list of judges. I would want Judge John E. Jones III, the one who presided over the Kitzmiller v. Dover trial., to be on that list.

Edit: You want to see junk science, read this by the creationist making the challenge, Joseph Mastropaolo.

Too easy.

Genesis is hearsay at best. Hearsay is not allowed in court.
Supernatural and spectral evidence is also not allowed in court.

He loses by default.
A bad analogy is like a leaky screwdriver....
