03/31/2005: Thought for the Day:
Your comments indicate that you are trying to confront the anti-evolutionists on a rational basis. My experience is that this is a waste of time. Their objections to evolution have little to do with rationality. It is rather an emotional attempt to minister to their fractured religious certainty. I am no longer willing to have rational conversations with or to take seriously the point of view of people such as the members of the flat earth society, creationists or those who think homosexuals choose to be depraved. Life is far too short to waste any of its precious moments in meaningless conversations with irrational ignorance.
