    I already have my "cure" for Cancer, should I ever get it. I watched 3 of my 4 grandparents and my father die of Cancer; sorry I'm not interested in going through any of that stuff, whether it's a cure or a funeral at the end.

    Re: You Have No Constitutional Right To Your Own Science

    Science in my humble uneducated opninion is necessary must be nutured and CONTROLLED. I believe the "mad scientist syndrome" can exist and do harm and I do believe that scientists will lie through their teeth to get their name published in some book somewhere and that has happened many times already.
    Science is the way we learn and progress...but it has to be controlled and not let to its own designs totally.. Just recently all the lieing on both sides about global warming has so diluted the truth...no one really knows what the hell the truth is.

    It is what it is, Pinkie; but I do thank you for the condolances. The loss of my father in August of 2001 is what finally turned me away from the church completely; but that's a story for another time and place.

    Willful ignorance motivated by religous beliefs =/= some new scientific breakthrough.

    Evolution is a fact; the "theory" refers to the fact that we still have gaps in the record, such as the "missing link" between apes and Homo Sapiens.

    Nope. This is absolutely the wrong thing to do, if it is meant to convey to students that evolution is in doubt.

    Old argument...I dont think anyone really doubts evolution...where the doubt comes in is how the very first life form was created to begin the process of evolution, the very first lifeform could not have evolved.
