Study finds that Carl Sagan presentation is better than Richard Dawkins when debating creationists

A Canadian study finds that taking a Carl Sagan presentation is better than a Richard Dawkins approach when debating creationists.

Conclusion: Injecting some philosophical context with your facts and anti-creationism arguments will be more successful than facts alone.
