The Pitman Postulate
 

The Pitman Postulate 

"Any internet conversation, of reasonable public visibility, covering the topics of microbiology, evolutionary biology, abiogenesis, or the big bang theory given sufficient time, will degrade to arguments about creationism and Intelligent Design."

- Shawn Pitman

 

Corollary (from a special case of Godwin's Law):

"As any publicly viewable internet discussion in which creationism and Intelligent Design are featured grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."

- Shawn Pitman
