   RE: [xml-dev] Is Web 2.0 the new XML?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Fine.  Let them come to your schools.  Not mine. 
I love my children too much to give in to the 
sophistry of the boobs who want to pervert their 
minds to satisfy their lust for power.

There is no debate, Doug.  It's not science.  It's 
religion.  Teach it in a comparative religion class 
with other faith-based theories of creation, and 
I've no problem with such electives.  Teach it as 
science and you are committing a crime against 

Don't make apologies for me.  I post that with no 
reservations or hesitation.


From: Doug Rudder [mailto:drudder@drugfacts.com]

This is the single most offensive post I've ever read (which is a shame
since it comes from someone I've always respected). 

One can make (and many scientists have made) a solid, logical, and truly
scientific argument that evolutionary theory itself is more religion than
science. Your comments are extremely religious in nature; you've taken
unproven theory and portrayed it as the One Truth, condemning all other
positions as superstitions and its practitioners as mindless, evil,
"hideously perverse" morons instead of caring parents and intelligent human
beings. I guess what is most disappointing is that someone who seems to
advocate broad thinking could be so narrow minded and spiteful. So much for
scientific method and objectivity. This is the "I'm right and you're stupid
so shut up" method of argument.

I apologize to members of this list. This is not the place for non-XML
debates and religious fervor (which includes *BOTH* sides of the debate).
