This might seem like an odd thread but an assignment I've recently received has bestowed upon me and the members of my group to engage in a debate of human evolution vs. special creation. I got special creation, arguably the worst and most difficult topic to argue (the other debate is evolution vs. creationism). Research hasn't pulled up much as most of it is just evangelicals preaching on the Internet, citing the Bible and simply denouncing evolution (with no real empirical data). I need to somehow make a logical and coherent argument in favour of special creation, but I have to have the facts. I can't just spew empty rhetoric, or exaggerate things. The format of the debate is... we get an opening statement, there's a question and answer period, and then there's a closing statement. Because of the lack of data or evidence whatsoever behind my topic (IMHO) I'm trying to look for ways to poke holes in the concept of human evolution... like what's the evolutionary advantage to believing in God? It's because God has willed it, and he is our creator, etc. Why do humans have a conscience? Things like that. What do you guys think? Have any of you done this before? Or are there any of you out there who support special creation and can maybe give me a few tips? Are there other holes in the concept of human evolution I should become aware of? Any books that might have good info on this? Thanks.
