PvM says

religious people try to apply disclaimers to science, why just to
evolutionary science? No this is not about science, it's about the
discomfort of some with science's conclusions.

Folks, the entire ASA, as far as I know, are religious people. And most
are not applying disclaimers to science.

Yes, the creationists, in various flavors, often do such a thing. But we
are speaking of multiple overlapping sets of people. Nobody can paint
accurately with such a broad brush.

 So PvM has just mischaracterized the entire audience. Its like saying
black people beat their wives. What? Thats offensive. I know creationists
who attack all of science. And others who attack none. And not everybody is
a creationist. And non-religious people apply disclaimers to science too.
What a crock this discussion is.

Legitimate questions asked in good faith will be answered in due course.
Stupidity will be ignored. If someone who is a member of the ASA wants to
disagree with me, I am up for it.
But this isn't the kansas citizens for science hate group.
