Thank you, R. Puter, for this referral to the Baloney Detector. I found it at <a href="http://creationsafaris.com/crevbd.htm" title="http://creationsafaris.com/crevbd.htm">http://creationsafaris.com/crevbd.htm</a>. Is that the same one to which you are referring? There certainly is a wealth of information, detailing the logical fallacies that plague a conversation when someone wants to dodge or distort the truth. And yes, we are facing a generation that has been brought up in a public school system, and we are facing the horrible harvest of that costly mistake. Objectivity and critical thinking that allow the logic of cause and effect, unpolluted by an a priori commitment to "not allow a Divine foot in the door" (Richard Lewontin), is so removed from their thinking, that a dismissive arrogance is often a cover for their willful ignorance. While I find the same hostile, unreasoning resistance in many, there are others who, when presented with the ability to see through these logical fallacies, are drawn to the liberating truth evident in the Author of both Scripture and (true) science alike. We have a commitment (1 Peter 3:15) to reason with those who will listen from the generation which has been subjected to those fallacies. And we have the children of this budding generation before (I am thinking of my 6 grandchildren) who must know how to "speak with the enemy in the gate" rather than retreat in the seclusion of unchallenged tradition (Psalm 127:3-5).
