    Was re-watching Powder while trying to track down the full video of this debate. [i would strongly recommend reversing that order. The mind set imposed by the movie makes Ham's 30 min. "argument" nearly impossible to set through.]

    One of the truths of the movie, as explained by the hero, is that we are all connected to each other and every thing around us. And the only reason some don't see that, is the inability to see past "a spot" in our head. That "spot" is a filter comprised of ego, hubris, greed, ignorance and lack of intellectual curiosity. The debate reveals a truth that that "spot" is not dissipating.

    The most egregious part of Ham's presentation was the use of a PhD. astronomer who believed and rationalized his own 6000-year-old "spot" and no one has clawed back his PhD. It's already hard enough to push (l)iberal education when there are too many instances, like this twit, who prove there are times when there is no difference between vellum and toilet paper.
