    and a very interesting website too!

    No other than one of my heros Dick Feynman giving some opinions, and in his usual humorous way.

    Which Mike are you? Are you the one who plays guitar and has a current problem? Are you back?

    Old Richard has a very clear way of explaining things for sure! I have the lectures he gave to undergrads, great read.

    The evolutionists have a form of cargo cult science as he calls it. For they
    lack this scientific integrity he mentions. They want to keep the problems
    with evolution from being taught in the schools, a perfect example of what
    he was referring to, a lack of scientific integrity.

    What you call 'problems' are simply straw men dressed up as science. If you want to present creationism in class, it had better be a class on religion and nothing more. Trying to force it in a science class is abuse of young minds but you don't care in the least about that. You want your ancient mythology to take over the world and to rule with the iron hand of fear and to drive women back to the middle ages where you want them. It's too bad there is no such thing as a time machine, I would gladly send you back a thousand years to show you what religious repression is for real.

    I am not insisting on teaching creationism, only the problems with the
    theory of evolution and the misleading drawings and such in the books
    should be removed. This is the lack of scientific integrity. They should
    teach the whole truth instead of leaving out those things they can not
    explain to fit their world view. Knowledge has advanced quickly in these
    last days just as the Holy Bible has predicted. However, this had nothing
    to do with the theory of evolution. It could have advance just as fast or
    maybe even faster without that theory since belief in it has cause many
    scientist to waste time until they realized that theory was hogwash.

    Exactly how do you know the things they left out since you never actually read a book on evolution. You are making unfounded assumptions. Of course, anything to further your mythological cause.

    If the Lord is on your side, you don't need an elementary understanding of the things you attempt to refute.

    Marvel's pictures are quite misleading. Marvel comics should have some DC superheroes in them as well.

    For starters, anything you write is irrelevant to any honest religion, and particularly to Christianity.
