    I didn't think I was arguing that!!!! I certainly didn't intend to!!!

    As I recall (and of course I may only be partially right!)- I don't have the
    journal issue to hand - you took me to task for using Calvin's phrase of the
    fall: 'perverted the whole order of nature in heaven and earth', and saying
    that the nature of the fall depended upon whether or not we took scientific
    issues into account. I was trying to dodge the issue!
