Phony Debates

Because media like to frame news items as debates, they have to dredge up a crank to pollute 50% of the air time. Christian fundamentalists are required to explain creationism, why their god Yahweh’s hatred of gays should be enacted into civil law, why Yahweh will really really hurt you if you avoid end-of-life torment with suicide, why global warming in a conspiracy, etc. people who once had a sick child who once had a vaccination making them an expert. I am surprised the media don’t think they need one for every Hubble telescope or Mars lander story for balance.
