It’s a bumpy ride as he’s confronted with some lively debates along the way, but by the end could he possibly win over any of these believers with what he regards as hard scientific fact?

No.

Interesting. It's like a reality TV show.

re: #2 Gus

Interesting. It's like a reality TV show.

From Prothero's entry:

[ after describing extensive science mini-lectures the group received] But that scientific message was a tiny part of the hourlong episode, which is largely filled with footage that one finds in many reality shows, from “Survivor” to MTV’s “The Real World”: people are cooped up together on camera and begin to squabble amongst themselves. Most of the episode focused on the antics of the five creationists as they rode their bus through 2000 tedious miles of the American interstates over an entire week, got into fights, split into factions, argued with each other, and generally acted immature and thoughtless. [...]

It was a really, really big earthquake.

Either that, or they confused Sacramento with SF.

Indeed, they showed the classic response of a true believer: when something threatens your worldview, you cling to it even more strongly and find any way you can to dismiss or ignore contrary evidence.

Are we talking about creationists or the GOP base? Silly me, they are one and the same....

A theory from creationists showing their diseased thinking!

I'm sorry the British have creationists too. I thought it was a uniquely American problem (although I'm sure the Islamic fundamentalists would agree with their American counterparts).

I hope the creationist Brits don't make up 50% of the population like they do here.

Four out of five Britons repudiate creationism

I still think 20% full-on ignorant is too high though - we still have work to do.

The survey suggests there is a widespread lack of religious sentiment across Britain. National average figures revealed that less than a third of adults see evolution as part of God's plan, 89% dismiss intelligent design and 83% reject creationism as plausible explanations for the existence of human life.

The survey reveals a relatively high proportion of people in London who believe in creationism. "Whereas the national average is 17% who believe that human beings were created by God in the last 10,000 years ... in London, that figure is 20%. That may well be due to the growth of Pentecostal churches in London, which are growing at an extraordinary rate," said Paul Woolley, director of Theos.

Hilarious! Impossible to tell if it's satire or for real though.
