Waldo: Thanks for the link.

"Another debate with creationists"

The debaters are not creationists. If the author can't get that basic fact straight, I wouldn't put much confidence in the rest of what he said.

Plus, the fact that this guy is arguing on the grounds of reason and logic puts him on theistic ground -- both are incomprehensible and absurd in an arational, illogical, uncreated world.

You can be an atheist -- but you can only be so on the foundation of theism. As I've said before, "atheists owe God a lot".
