    Allan, here's another example of ID sweet-talk:

    "Not to put too fine a point on it, the Darwinian establishment views
    theistic evolution as a weak-kneed sycophant that desperately wants the
    respectability that comes with being a full-blooded Darwinist but refuses to
    follow the logic of Darwinism through to the end. It takes courage to give
    up the comforting belief that life has a purpose. It takes courage to live
    without the consolation of an afterlife. Theistic evolutionists lack the
    stomach to face the ultimate meaninglessness of life, and it is this failure
    of courage that makes them contemptible in the eyes of full-blooded
    Darwinists." William Dembski, in _Intelligent Design_, InterVarsity Press,
    p. 112.

    harshly, how much sharper a point would one need?????
