    I think it's good for him to do the debate. For one thing, I think these people get a lot of mileage from the fact that no one debates them. It's better to present the case.

    As for this:

    A formal debate against someone legitimizes their position.
    I don't think that matters. Millions of people in this country already believe evolution is some kind of nefarious conspiracy by scientists to undermine (their) religion. They consider their position completely legitimate.

    People need to see the evidence presented for evolutionary theory. We are in a battle to manage public perception. That will not be aided by silence.
