1. Why just evolution?

It's time for religion to accept science, in general.

It's time for religion to accept that all people are equal, no matter what they believe or what their race, gender, etc.

It's time for religion to accept the fact that it's the freaking 21st century.

3. I don't care if "religions" accept or reject anything.

All I care is that they respect the wall of separation between church and state.

They can believe whatever they want as long as they don't try to impose those beliefs on anyone else and/or try to use the state to force belief.

4. Respectfully, rather than bringing religion forward, leave it in the past

 

It is past time for society and individuals to move on.

5. Wouldn't that mean religion needs to evolve?

6. The sooner religion in all its guises disappears forever, the better off humanity will be.

There is no redeeming quality to religion that cannot be replicated through secular charity or simple communal instinct; however, the air of legitimacy that it has provided for sexism, racism, slavery, bigotry, hate, murder, rape, pillaging, plunder, revenge and all around evil shit in general cannot be replicated as easily...

7. The reason creationism

is not and never will be a science is because none of its claims can be either proven or falsified and it has no methodology for doing so, ergo, claims of supernatural agency in the world are not and by definition cannot be scientific. Discussions like the one above are painful to watch. The scientific community inadvertently adds respectability to this religious incursion by sitting down with these people. It would equally laughable were scientists to masquerade as theologians.

8. The 'moderator' should keep his mouth shut..

and let the '2 sides' have at it. While it is clear to me the "10,000 year'ers" have no evidence for anything, he should stop taking sides.
Jeeze.. can't believe I said that... but..of course this is just an entertainment tv show..

9. Agree

It would have been nice to have just one person talking at a time. Also, I kept looking for close captioning. Some of the accents were difficult to understand.
