        You're a great-hearted soul to take that attitude.  But, I for one
signed up here to get away from leather-lunged creationists shouting every
else down in usenet.  The arguments they deploy are either willful
misrepresentations of valid controversies, or exhumed hypotheses that were
exploded in the previous century.  Proof doesn't work with these
people--they don't _want_ an education.
