Brutal. But beautiful.

The most brutal letter of a reply from a scientist to a Creationist I've ever seen...

How to respond to requests to debate creationists
By using nothing but the simple fact they can't get around:
"Nothing could possibly be more exciting and electrifying to biology than scientific disproof of evolutionary theory or scientific proof of the existence of a god. That would be Nobel Prize winning work, and it would be eagerly published by any of the prominent mainstream journals... I will wait patiently to read about the work of creationists in the pages of Nature and Science. But until it appears there, it isn't science and doesn't merit an invitation."
