What your basically saying (I think) is that I should interpret the evidence without bias. But that really is immpossible. Someone can take the
exact same evidence and interpret in in many different ways. Nearly everyone has a bias. For
example, if I gave you clear-cut evidence which
made an excellent case for creation, you (or at least almost all people who believe in evolution)
would simply interpret the evidence another way, or simply dismiss it. Creationist do the same thing. Do you really think I could make you a creationist? Or does your faith in evolution, like mine in creation, automatically try to fit
the evidence into your beliefs? That's why me giving you evidence or me giving you evidence is most likely a futile arguement, because we probably can not change each others minds. Maybe you are completely un-biased, but you would be the first
person I have ever seen if that were so.

And about not getting along well. :) Just because we have different viewpoints does not mean we won't get along. I look forward to many interesting arguements, and I hope you won't take
anything I say peronsally. :) KC2GWX 73's
