A Creationist in California has promised to put up $10,000 to the winner of a debate before a judge who can successfully argue that evolution contradicts a literal interpretation of the Bible’s first book, Genesis.
From the Guardian:
A California creationist is offering a $10,000 challenge to anyone who can prove in front of a judge that science contradicts the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis.
Dr Joseph Mastropaolo, who says he has set up the contest, the Literal Genesis Trial, in the hope of improving the quality of arguments between creationists and evolutionists, has pledged to put $10,000 of his own money into an escrow account before the debate. His competitor would be expected to do the same. The winner would take the $20,000 balance.
