Thread Name: BS: BBC v. Jeremy Clarkson.
Subject: RE: BS: BBC v. Jeremy Clarkson.
Stu, I have never received any vitriol from pete. Pete knows where I stand on 'religious' matters and I know where he stands and years ago we agreed to disagree. We've never had a cross word because it's very difficult to dislike someone who chooses not to be rude.

In areas of belief and science there are two camps. I'm in the science camp, but I don't perceive those people in the belief camp to be my enemies. I think they are misguided, something I figure they also think of me. C'est la vie.

As to name-calling, there is altogether too much of that on this site. Just because I think someone is foolish doesn't give me license to call that person a fool. How people think they can further discussion or debate with bad manners is beyond me, but a read through the god/no/god/Darwin part of this thread will show that there's enough blame to give most of us a doggie bag of remarks as keepsakes.

Someone always hits someone else first. Both the religious and scientific people here should be able to see that.

If the topic is Gregor Mendel, there will necessarily be mention of both his religious bent and his studies that laid down the foundation for our understanding of heredity. Similar
