CSA has a standing offer to debate any old-earth
or evolution advocate, of any purported rank or educational standing (with
one reservation, see 1. below), of any belief system: Atheist, Theist,
Deist, Pantheist, or "Christian."
CSA will defend the Biblical position on
origins. "For in six days the Lord God created the Heavens, the Earth
and the Seas, and all that is therein" (Exodus 20). He could have
done it in less time, but he apparently chose six days as a model He expected
Man to follow. The exact date of the Creation is not known (at least by
us) but ample Biblical and scientific evidence places it less than ten
thousand years ago. We do not accept any variant of a Gap theory, theistic
evolution, multi-billion-year earth + 6000 year "reconstruction"
or other variant of "very old earth" but brief life history.
We accept a great deal of diversity among the created kinds
from the initial few who got off the Ark, put this was planned and created
diversity and adaptation, not evolution. Not once in the history of the
cosmos, or of science, has a single living thing began, nor has a single
new biological structure ever formed, by any process, much by a natural
We have only a few minor debate requirements:
1. Our opponent(s) must have at least a Bachelors Degree
(Ph. D. preferred) and profess to have taught the topic for at least five
years and/or debated at least a few times. (Our reason may not be obvious.
We once accepted a debate with a person of unknown credentials. The debate
was humiliating for him, difficult for us, and of little value to the
2. We will provide a maximum of two debaters for any
debate, our opponents may bring all the help they want, but each team
will have the same time, not each person.
3. We have no provisions regarding the composition of
the audience, provided they do not participate in, or hinder the debate.
They should be at least 11 years old, preferably older.
4. Audience participation in a Q & A session after
the debate is welcomed.
5. Small scraps of paper will be distributed to the audience
to enable them to vote on who they feel demonstrated the best evidence
and reason under girding their position.
6. The topic of the debate will be agreed to in writing
by both teams. It is often desirable to narrow the topic so more depth
can be achieved, but this not a requirement. For suggested debate topics,
see bottom of page.
We have debated in Colleges, Universities, Churches, High
Schools, and Atheist Clubs. But, after all, we are Creationists, so, according
to oft-published evolutionist claims, we must be completely uneducated
and incompetent, therefore easy marks for any trained evolutionist(s).
