Bertvan: None of these questions will be decided by me; I am not a scientist.
However, I can't resist opposition to what I see as a climate where any
skepticism of the orthodox dogma, any interest in alternative explanations,
is declared to be "an attack upon science". Some people seem to regard this
a noble battle--this fight against "the enemies of Darwinism". They
appear dedicated to stamping out-- eradicating-- become victorious over--
creationism, design, or any other perceived threat to Darwinism. True, most
scientists probably aren't involved, but it is being done in the name of
science. If I were a scientist, I would protest--loudly and indignantly.

Creationism is not a threat to Darwinism and shall never be. It's a threat to science education.
