Speaking of quoting, I feel that those who are evangelists are often disrespectful of others who have beliefs different from theirs. You know how people dislike being approached by credit card salesmen? It’s the same feeling. People have better things to do in their short lives than to spend yet another minute on constructs like credit cards, easy debts, and unwanted sales pitches.
America has got this fetish for television debates, usually nothing gets done and it’s a big gong show.
It’s almost perfectly possible for me to posit why the camps of science versus creationism could exist. The most fascinating line for me has always been religious scientists and how do they reconcile their beliefs.
Anyhow, I’m still on the science side, brain is too logical to overcome.
