I think its a toss-up between the Amazing Randi and Phil Plait. Especially if they're a tag team. Reasons:

Phil is working with Randi. (Recently accepted to an amazing position in Randi's organization. Congratulations.)

Randi has intellectual cunning and insights to verbally whittle down an opponent with cool logic.

Phil does too plus physical strength and a giant telescope to clobber any opponent. (Have you seen his calendar picture?)

Since tag-teams are not an option I picked Phil (with Randi ringside applying the logical verbal abuses!)

Diversity, independence, innovation and imagination are progressive concepts ultimately alien to the conservative mind.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Based on the results of this Grand Melee, we can always do another one in a few months.

Kil, put a warning first, sheesh. I was not ready for that, and neither was my bowl of soup.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

Sheesh, Ricky, wasn't the name of the file enough?

Put "skepdude," "calendar" and "big" together, and you know what's behind the click.

Every time I see the name "Eugenie Scott", I get the image of her dancing on the Beware the Believers video.
I never saw an image of her before, and you know... First impression.

Well, that was just her head. The body belonged to Michael Edmondson.

Hi from the other side...This poll is woefully inadequate. My man Neil Degrasse Tyson would mop the floor with all of them. If for some reason he has been intentionally left off this list then I pick Hitchens, nothing like a drunken monkey in a cage.

chef, we're thinking about doing a second Cage Match, since we're limited to 15 participants (or 14 plus "other").

Hmmm what you should do is a kind of play off championship. Break them up into matching groups of 12 and run them off until you have the final championship cage match poll of the surviving top 2.

I mentioned that possibility over at ERV when some commenters wondered how Penn and Teller didn't make the list.

Let's see how much blood we can squeeze out of this...

Another significant poll that will change the universe
Category: Pointless polls
Posted on: August 19, 2008 9:34 AM, by PZ Myers

Right now, this one's a tough choice: Who would win in a free-for-all, anything-goes cage match?. The top two contenders are PZ "The Violator" Myers and Christopher "Drunken Monkey" Hitchens, with me in the lead…probably because the thought of a man nicknamed "The Violator" and a reputation for tentacle mayhem is too terrifying to contemplate.



Tentacle mayhem!





"What luck for rulers that men do not think." -- Adolf Hitler (1889 - 1945)

"If only we could impeach on the basis of criminal stupidity, 90% of the Rethuglicans and half of the Democrats would be thrown out of office." ~~ P.Z. Myres


"The default position of human nature is to punch the other guy in the face and take his stuff." ~~ Dude

and Crypto-Communist!
