Post Most rational Creationist Forum

I acknowledge from the start that I very well may be looking for a purple unicorn but I was curious if there are any "rational" creationist forums where there is active debate and discussion. Or even something archived that covers the typical topics. Everything I read here and at RS follows the same pattern and is... well... predictable. I've spent the past few days reading quite a bit at both sites and I realize my bias has probably swung too far in the skeptical direction and I figure it would be fair to spend at least a similar amount of time reading the debates in their house so to speak. Am I wasting my time (which I have ample amount of) or does this exist?

I think the closest you will get is The Skeptical Zone.

Much of it isn't at all rational, but there is at least some times the pretense of a discussion about scientific topics.

That's along the line I was looking for. However, the layout is horrid. I did find a couple of interesting threads though. Thanks!

Not to toot this forums horn to much, but any good skeptic is fair and charitable to their opposite in a discussion. I feel this place has that in droves. Thus, when reading through the backlog of stuff here, you are getting the most reasonable look at both side. I would say the reason it all starts to sound the same is because the creationists rarely have anything new to say and simply hoard debunked arguments to reuse on new people. For me at least, that makes these discussions formulaic. I know if I ask certain questions I will get only a handful of answers.

Because of this, I highly doubt there could ever be a rational creationists forum with an active discussion. The intelligent design creationist scientists are not coming up with new research. If one side of the discussion is not coming up with new information, and the other side had won the discussion over one hundred years ago based on the research they had at that time, is there any wonder why there is not an active discussion on the internet?
