Dear Dick,

I do not know with what crowd you are lumping me with but you are all wet!
Christianity is being scorned by some academic and scientific circles
because of PRIDE--the worst sin. As it says in Romans 1:22, "Professing to
be wise, they became fools." Believe me no scientist runs his/her life
with the findings, better said assumptions, made by evolutionary theory. I
can imagine an evolutionist telling his kids that they are related to
monkeys and then insist his/her children abide to moral/ethical behavior. I
find more of a contradiction there than I would ever find it in a person
that knows God and believes the account of Genesis.

Take care,

Moorad
