I was up very late last night and maybe I'm just tired, but I am really missing your point.<quoted text>
"And whether one believes the Earth is 6,000 years old, or 10,000 years old or 4.5 billion years old, it has no bearing on one's political perspective anyway."
And yet politicians pander to groups of people based on various demographics.
And yet the cry went up, "Teach the Controversy".
And yet we never hear you admonish those who claim exclusive knowledge of just who constitutes the True Christian.
Your concern rings hollow.
I presume this is related to my support of ID. But as I have already stated, I do not support teaching Creationism - opponents prefer to ignore ID's use of science in order to support the claim that ID and Creationism are the same, but they are not.(Can we please NOT get into another debate on this subject)
And I do not recall anyone on here claiming "exclusive knowledge of just who constitutes the True Christian" - point me to it and I'll respond - and if it was based on something I said that inferred such a thing - definitely please point it out because I would definitely want to correct whatever impression I carelessly left.
