> There is no debate, Doug. It's not science. It's religion.
> Teach it in a comparative religion class with other

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

> 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).
