and as for the rest of your post here--I find all that dark age goat herder stuff only slightly useful, like for examples of how NOT to mire through life barbarically UNenlightened.<quoted text>
If one does, it certainly won't be like anything described in the bronze age collection of goat herder myths, fables and fairy tales known as the Bible. NO higher cosmic intelligence could be that stupid.
This is true. There do seem to be LOTS of people who prefer "living" in the 14th century and remaining willfully ignorant of the VAST amount of science that is known.
BTW, the VAST majority of the world's scientists and populace DO accept the scientific validity of the ToE.
That, and for the studies of historical civilization as far as insights into-as we know it...thus far anyway!
