“...anything but respectful...” so is the estimation of one who religiously holds to evolutionism. Bill , if I seem to be using my arguments like a bludgeon, could it be that that there is some force behind the argument . I agree that evidence is more reasonable a term to use , but we all have the same evidence , but interpret it differently “...rejecting a pretty clear set of data ...’ it’s begging the question who is rejecting clear data ..... and it’s not just creationists that have a ‘belief system ‘ : even evolutionists themselves have admitted as much . “98+%’....”. I’m pretty sure they said the same to all those in the past that were later deemed right after all , and the fact that evolutionists have to appeal to the unscientific idea of consensus science , rather than evidence their belief ,speaks volumes . Consensus ‘science’ “is not going to wash” !
