Hovind's Creation Seminar

I believe Matt mentioned on one of the shows that it would be a good idea to put up a discussion/dissection/fisking of Kent Hovind's creation seminar. I agree, and to that end, I've thrown together a proposed template, adapted from the one for the Way of the Master episodes:

Kent Hovind Creation Seminar

1. The Age of the Earth | 2. The Garden of Eden | 3. Dinosaurs and the Bible | 4. Lies in the Textbooks | 5. The Dangers of Evolution | 6. The Hovind Theory | 7. Questions and Answers

One consideration is that the seminar is long and contains many assertions thrown out at a furious pace, to say nothing of the fact that creationism is only tangentially related to the main focus of Iron Chariots.

Since pretty much every claim of Hovind's has been refuted already, IMHO it would be useful to have a template for linking to the Index of creationist claims, so that something like [cc:CH311] would expand to [http://www.talkorigins.org/indexcc/CH/CH311.html CH311] . Unfortunately, my MediaWiki-fu is not strong, and I don't know how to write such a template. Can anyone help? --Arensb 15:57, 3 November 2006 (CST)

The best I can come up with for the Index to Creationist Claims template is:
[http://www.talkorigins.org/indexcc/{{{1}}}/{{{1}}}{{{2}}}.html {{{1}}}{{{2}}}] , which would be called as {{cc|CB|952}} for claim CB952. It looks as though a fancier template that doesn't require the second bar would involve installing a MediaWiki extension.
