Hi Dick,

Having mentioned me by name in one of your recent postings I was hoping to
find there an answer to the question I posed a week or so ago, viz "As a
campaigning evolutionst, how have you, personally, come to terms with the
biblical assertion that birds were created before reptiles?" Am I therefore
to infer that you have no answer? Possibly the problem has not occurred to
you? On the other hand you may genuinely believe that such an uncomfortable
detail - pitting the words of men against the Word of God - may be lightly
ignored? IMO it would help remove a potential source of confusion for many
if the author of '' were now to speak clearly on this

By the way, when have you ever proved me "dead wrong"? And as for my
"imitating a Timex watch" - that really can't be a bad thing, can it?.
