An additional thought, Susan.

I suspect science will never achieve a final, ultimate understanding of life.
(Althoiugh science can certainly decipher many of the details.) Scientists
could stop arrogantly attacking all myths concerning evolution except
Darwinism. The belief that the fossils which have been found gradually
turned into each other is also a myth--with nothing to support it other than
the passionate wish that this simplistic formula IS an ultimate understanding
of life. Part of It may even be true, but science has no understanding of
the mechanism by which major changes in organisms happened. Insisting that
"random mutation and natural selection" is the answer, might even eventually
damage the credibility of science as Neo Darwinism becomes less and less
