Subject: RE: BS: Still no gods 2008 (continued)
I would normally completely agree, but we've BEEN doing the compassionate, polite thing, and look where it's gotten us, here in the Southern US. That is why so many of us think the time for "respect" is past for those who insist on denying demonstrated reality - not for *all* believers of *all* myths. My kids are in public school here in the Old Dominion... I can hardly wait to see what nonsense will happen when they take high school biology.

And the people I talk to about this are not, usually, those whose knee-jerk reflex defenses will just harden, but really thinking, intellegent people who would, one would think, allow their assumptions to be challenged, and answer those challenges thoughtfully. And most of the conversations within these threads have been like that. As I've said before, those who resent having their beliefs challenged may want to think about not posting them in a discussion forum.
