So how do we deal with this?  I mean, very few people doubt that the earth=
 orbits the sun (except for a few lunatics).  How do we reach this same=
 state about evolution?  Granted, we cannot see evolution happening today=
 (unless you count virus mutations), so this may hinder our efforts.  To put=
 it plainly, what did the astronomers have to do to legitimize the orbiting=
 earth (did it take the Apollo missions?), perhaps we can borrow a technique=
 or two.

Any suggestions?
