We should be more strident and not mealy-mouthed - particularly with regard to the bus advert.

Go to: [UPDATED] Richard Dawkins on Harun Yahya's Atlas of Creation

Andrew Mackay's Avatar Jump to comment 487 by Andrew Mackay

Fools like Yahya are inconsistent in their argument.
They reject scientific reasoning behind the principles of evolution and yet are the first to accept medical help when they are ill or need surgery.Why don't they just pray to their God to get them well again? Medical science is the culmination of considerable scientific reasoning, some of which is directly linked to evolution itself! For instance some of the research on cancer involves studying gene control and mechanisms of cell differentiation in some of the simplest multicellular organisms.Medical scientists are also trying to find ways of preventing viruses from evolving (or reverting) into resistant strains.The latter is evolution being witnessed on a daily basis, surely?.
