    Aw c'mon.

    At this point it looks like you are doing a bait and
    switch, I am sure not intentionally. Who's he talking
    about? Is he talking about rank-and-file YEC? I
    don't think so. Glenn, what say you? Walter, if
    Glenn says not, will you suggest an appropriate word for
    Glenn to use so that y'all don't go around in circles?
    How about Banana-sellers?

    As to your point about Dawkins, I am not sure I get it.
    The public perception is not correct just because it
    is a majority view. Anyone who thinks they can read
    a pop-science book and get a working knowledge
    of the subject is wrong. You have to supplement it
    with say a textbook or journal articles from that field.
    This seems like a very simple point to me, very easy
    to understand, and my and your first reply to someone
    who says "why should I accept evolution and its Prophet,
    Dawkins" should be "why don't you check out an
    evolutionary biology textbook from the library and
    start with that instead?". Goodness, anyone who
    is asking the first question clearly doesn't know what
    she's talking about and needs to do some more research!
