Well, I've been listening to creationist crap for 25 years now, and what I've noticed is that they really only have a very few arguments.
(1) "evolution is atheist!!" That, of course, is what ALL their bitching is really about. A subset of this argument is "evlution is evil !!!" Hence, we have creationists blaiming evolution for Hitler, for Columbine, and anything else evil in the world (including Carol Clouser, who thinks evolution is evil because it makes hyaenas eat the poor zebras). But alas for them, the creationists can't make this "morals" argument in court. So we get:
(2) "creationism is TOO science !!!!" The ID/creationist favorite for years. Of course, I've asked several hundred creationist/IDers over the years what their, uh, scientific theory is. And the only answers I ever get are (a) "Jesus saves!!!!" or (b) "I don't have to tell you". Alas for them, though, this argument fell on its face in court, repeatedly. So now we move on to:
(3) "evolution can't explain X, Y or Z !!!" Now we get to hear all about the bombardier beetle, the woodpecker, butterfly metamorphosis, black and white moths, all rolled into ID's current favorite, "teach the controversy". Classic God of the Gaps.
IDers simply have nothing new to say. Every argument they've made, every single solitary one of them, was already made decades ago by the creation "scientists". And lost.
