i've been on this forum for a few short weeks and i have noticed that almost everytime when we a topic reaches a point where creationists lose they just drop out of the topic entirely and just continue posting the same flat arguemnts, while pretending tey werent already pointed on the obvious flaws in their arguments.

for example, i still have to hear a single creationists admit that the flood theory as proposed by creationists would cook the earth rather than freeze it, or that if they still believe it that they willingly want to deny the laws of chemistry and physics.

would the creationist splz finish of theuir discussions like the honest people they probably are instead of just leaving the oposite side in confusion as to what their conclusions are.
Oh, and can you also link some discussions which you think you "won".

now i realize that the forum doesn't promote debating of any kind but still i would like to see more debates actually come to a close.

In other forums I've participated in, that practice is known as "post-and-run." It's generally frowned upon, being seen as a strong indication that the poster is trolling; in other words, they're not actually trying to engage in genuine debate/discussion, but just making intentionally-inflammatory statements for the purpose of getting people riled up.

well sci that's funny.. i came here to troll creationist with logic and science, but it turns out it's the creationist trolling the "evolutionists" with the default arguments.
 
that's just ironic...

The even funnier thing is that, in many ways, creationists arguments are nearly-indistinguishable from troll posts - since they genuinely believe things that most rational people would (and do) consider absurd.
 
So when it comes to creationist forums, I guess the old usenet rule of "you can't troll a troll" comes into play.
 
(And any minute now, someone will come along and interpret this post to mean "evolutionists" believe humans came from mythical creatures that lived underneath bridges)

LOL nothing. We should make a list on debating 101 for the creationists who like to terrorize the discussion.
Here's a very descriptive site on how to debate properly:
