Bertvan: I know of no other subject where differences of opinion are less tolerated
than evolution. Even people who admit no one knows the mechanism by which
macro evolution occurred seem inclined to attack those who disagree with

Nice unsupported opinion dear Bertvan

Bertvan: As an agnostic, I do hate to be lumped in with the atheists,
for atheism seems to me the most intolerant of all world views.

Again a personal and unsupported opinion.

In any case, I find Neo
Darwinism, (random mutation and natural selection as an explanation of macro
evolution.) implausible.

Ahhh personal incredulity...

Bertvan: I would have thought no Christian would have been able to accept Neo Darwinism, but apparently some manage to reconcile the two beliefs. I do not regard such people as either stupid, ignorant or deceitful. I suspect only those who are not secure in their beliefs resort
to such tactics.

Like calling atheist "most intollerant"? Come on Bert...
