TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE

1) No "!!!!" either. What was I thinking? I apologize for the misrepresentation.

2) Did he? I can neither confirm nor deny.

3) Sure. Along with conservative cowards Dick Cheney (five times), Donald Rumsfeld (during Korea, though he found time to serve between wars), Dick Armey, Trent Lott, Bill Bennett, George Will (methinks not sorely missed), John Ashcroft, and thousands more -- unless only liberals went to college between '65-'73.

WHAT'S A PRESIDENT TO DO?

I propose a motto for 9/12 world. "$!@# our principles, save our skin."

A SMALL VICTORY FOR SANITY

I am not saying I found a hole in evolution therefore it is all false. Here is my point. Even in the evolution camp--would you prefer I quote Behe or Dembski from 2005?--there are doubts about the fossil record and it's neither a sign of intellectual immaturity nor religious zealotry to admit it.

I'm not trying to convince anybody of anything. This is my personal question about the "proof" that's in museums (BTW: Favorite indoor place? Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. Card-carying member, too!): Here is early bone set A. There is later bone set B. That proves nothing to me except that A and B existed. Where are all the necessary iterations between those points? Maybe I can't expect complete lines for every living thing but I would expect the gaps to be quite rare not the lines. Saltation everywhere I look. A and B are facts. That A became B is not observable therefore, an assumption. Not a lie or an error necessarily, but an assumption. At such a point I get to decide for myself what I choose to believe. If every other person on earth agrees with me it is then a popular assumption yet not a fact.

"Museums full of proof...?"

"...the extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology. We fancy ourselves as the only true students of life's history, yet to preserve our favorite account of evolution by natural selection we view our data as so bad that we never see the very process we profess to study." Steven J. Gould, Natural History, May 1977 p.14.

"I'd prefer a God...?" Well then build one in your basement to your specs. Yours probably won't be able to do those occassional miracles, though.
