    Saw in the local newspaper and advert for a lecture on creationism vs evolution. The advert also implied it was a creationist lecture. Should I bother to go and try 'debating' with them?

    Well, I don't know that you should try to debate with them, but I would be interested in what you might learn. You never know, you might hear something about the issue you never heard before.

    Depends on the genre of the performance - is it comedy or tragedy?

    It may even be an action adventure.

    Bible Campaign "Creation not evolution" Lecture at Memorial Hall

    I might learn something but I expect I would hear the same tired misconceptions and tortured logic that appears on these pages time after time. Hope springs eternal though, it would be good to hear a new argument.

    Unfortunately, I have a barbeque to go to instead. Damn. I really would have liked to attend.

    Sit at the back and call them out on everything they get wrong.

    An invitation to go to a lecture is not an invitation to debate the lecturer. If you go, listen and be polite.

    EDIT - Go to the BBQ.

    Indeed, it was billed as a lecture, not a discussion so my only opportunity to speak would be during any question & answer session at the end, unless I heckled of course, which probably would have been counter-productive.

    Sadly, by barbecue attending duties had priority so I didn't go.

    everyone that goes there will be a creationist and they will gang up on you in the debate.

    Listen to Bill Hicks' "dinosaurs in the bible" and you'll know all you need to know about creationism.

    You can easily download the MP3.
