By making itinto a religious issue, the proponents have latched on to the onlyconstituency that would put up with it. Where do the ideas come from?From that well-known source, fear of the new.

: I liked the last quote best Val. You would disagree that it would apply to Mr. G. Wald? your friend bzrd:)
No, I wouldn't disagree at all. I'm a person of faith myself. God gave us all common sense. Unfortunately, some of us toss it when the learning process gets a little difficult. To me, clinging to the ideas of the past, especially when they've been proven wrong, is just mental laziness.
Anyone that thinks God has revealed all His truths to us long ago does not do Him justice. God isn't ignorant, people are.
Thank you for asking.
