I posted the link to the entire playlist, asking that the creationists just get around to watching the first one or two at least. Apparently, none did.

So just take the 10 minutes and watch the one about transitional fossils if you have integrity at all. You can stop watching when you can prove he said something false.

If creationists could be swayed by logic, there wouldn't be creationists. That being said, I still hope it at least challenges someone's preconceptions.

I think if your intended audience wanted to know about these things, they would know about them.

Calling into question a person's integrity over whether or not they watch a YouTube video seems like very poor gentlemanship.

I was swayed by logic to stop being a creationist back in the day. I think it was even arguments on this board that swayed me.

You've honestly renewed my faith in humanity a little bit. I was somewhat dismayed because it seems like no one ever responds to my posts on this board, but you've convinced me that some good may yet come of it. Thank you.

When you hold a position and refuse to consider any and all alternate positions while ignoring the evidence that supports it, I think it is fair to say that such a person lacks any sort of integrity. Not knowing something is one thing, but not knowing and acing like you do is stupidity.

But you don't know that is what they're doing. They could have any number of reasons why they aren't able/willing to watch some YouTube video that a guy on the internet insisted they do or else they lack "integrity". Not following a person's instructions on their timetable is an awfully silly reason to insult them.
