ABSTRACT
The article discusses the authors experience in competing with a creation scientist for a Life Science Prize offered by Teno Groppi and his friends. The challenge offers $20,000 dollars to an evolutionist to prove that evolution is science and that creation is religion and awards the same amount to creation scientist proving that creation is science and evolution is religion. The said challenge is comparable to the challenge offered by Flat Earthers to scientists in 1870. With its aim to contend with Joseph Mastropaolo, a creationist, the author gathered evidences but had observe that numerous of his respondents refuse to discuss further the issue. Knowing that the contest was done in a semi-private setting and was set to lure debates on both sides, the challenge was not pursued.
