            Unless you think everybody else on this list is literally a moron you
    cannot seriously mean that the claims you make are "self-evident". & unless you
    think we're all gross hypocrites, you can't attribute our uniform rejection of
    your claims to lack of commitment to the gospel. If you do think that we're
    morons & hypocrites, your time would be better spend trying to persuade others.
    If you don't think that, you might consider a basic criterion for both
    scientific and theological study enunciated, I think, by Snoopy: "Have you ever
    considered the possibility that you might be wrong?"
