Insecure Darwinist Reveals His Definition of a Fair Hearing

Talk about insecurity. A pro-Darwin columnist for the Johnson County Sun in Kansas has revealed his definition of a fair public hearing on evolution: 10,000 Darwinists vs. 1 supporter of intelligent design. Anything else in his view would be a "stacked-deck" against Darwinists. The columnist urges evolutionists to boycott such events:

Evolutionists should stop appearing at stacked-deck public "hearings" put on to trap evolutionists. By merely bringing "intelligent design" to a level playing field with evolutionary science, the ID proponents have managed to upgrade their faith-based theory to a quasi-scientific theory, and they have knocked the science of evolution down to the same level as faith. Furthermore, by presenting these as one-on-one debates, there is a gross misrepresentation. To be accurate, there should be 10,000 evolutionists for each ID proponent. Evolutionists should boycott these farces.

The only "farce" here is the Darwinists' Orwellian claim that any public hearing is "stacked" against them if it is not stacked overwhelmingly in their favor. Don't defenders of Darwin's theory realize how silly and insecure this argument makes them look?
