Abstract

The once dormant confrontation between evolutionism and creationism has erupted again in a flurry of public debates, court actions and publications. A content analysis of some of these debates suggests that some of the apparent success of the creationists in influencing public opinion is a result of differences in the form, rather than content, of the arguments by both sides.
