    I can understand the frustration of many scientists over creationism and
    consider the over the top responses to be largely the fault of creationists,
    who make it very difficult to have a reasoned discussion on Christianity and
    Science. Creationsits do the cause of the Gospel incredible damage.

    Jay responds:

    The problem I have encountered with many scientists is their complete
    refusal to admit that their theories or hypothesis are not facts. They
    cling to them with great faith but seem to be unable to deal with genuine
    challenges to numerous assumptions. They also demean those who cling to the
    Bible in simple faith. Perhaps a history of scientific facts proved fiction
    should be required of all BS candidates.

    We believe our modern science is infallible. So to did Victorians believe
    man had reached his pinnacle of scientific and societal achievement

    I, like you, do not have time to deal with Rennie's rant item by item, but
    on first gloss, I certainly did not find it to be any less stable waste than
    Hoesch's. I would have no less difficulty defending either's postulates.

    My job is proof of facts and debate. Rare is the client that sees the
    weaknesses in his own case or the strengths in his opponent's.

    I do not place the blame on either camp but on that attitude scripture
    repeatedly says God hates most in man, pride.

    Best Regards,
