A creationist on twitter is pestering me to ‘debate’ her. Here’s a sampling of her arguments and style.
No way can we have a conversation about that in a 140 character limit. So I’m telling her to come here and expand on her ideas, if she can.
But first, I’d like her to answer a little quiz to see if she’s worth wasting time on.
What is a typical mutation rate? (be specific about the units!)
Are most mutations deleterious, neutral, or beneficial?
What is the difference between phenotype and genotype?
What is the difference between mutation and “deformity”?
What is “elephant disease”?
That’s a start. I’m going to tell her on Twitter to come here and address these very simple questions. Anyone want to take bets on whether she bothers?
