He claims that Stephen Jay Gould (now deceased) himself said that in the last hundred major debates of creationism vs. evolution, the creationism side won.
I can remember reading an article by Gould where he pointed out that the debater with the weaker argument (factually) could still win the debate. I think his point was that to convince the layperson that evolution is the best possible explanation, you have to do more than present data. You have to somehow exhibit a passion for the argument that rivals the creationist zeal, that's what people respond to. It probably shouldn't be that way, but it is.
