MAJORPAIN:

I concur, I have 2 such new friends now.

Richard:

As for your question: I am generally of the opinion that the best course of action is neither coddling or contempt. Education is all we need. Just give them the facts and let them work out how to square evolution with their religious beliefs. Frankly, the very watered down version of religion that relagates "God" to a cosmic tinkerer doesn't really bother me.

It's only when those kinds of folks give the extremists a pass do I get annoyed.

PS. I would pay a good deal of cash to see Hithchens or Harris go up against Coulter (or this Hart fellow). It won't happen though.
