Full disclosure: I did not watch last night's highly publicized debate between young earth creationist Ken Ham and TV's "Science Guy" Bill Nye. I don't know who won the debate. I know that partisans on both sides of the question are claiming some measure of victory. I also know that it doesn't matter.
You see, the winner in a debate is not necessarily the one who has the truth on their side. It is the one who is more skilled at debating.
