One word of caution: Since what I wrote was my estimate of the position
some conservative Christians may be gravitating toward, it shouldn't be
taken as truly the view of any Christian. While I appreciate your and
George's responses, I do wish some Christians who have a serious problem
with some aspect of science would respond -- even to tell me I'm all wet.

Good idea.
