Comment 17 by AnthropicConstance :

"If we are descended from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys?"

We aren't descended from monkeys, but you could answer it this way:

if Christians are descended from Jews, why are there still Jews?

It turns out that the common ancestor of humans and monkeys is extinct, in the same way that Latin,the common ancestor of French and Italian, is extinct.

Any paragraph staring with the greater than sign (ie the one that occurs in 5 "greater than" 3) will be blockquoted. Two of the little blighters and you get a nested blockquote etc. I think you can also use the html block quote syntax now. That used to be turned off. Two problems I have noticed:

It doesn't seem to handle two consecutive block quoted paras that well. If there is only a line space between them they get put together. If there is text they get separated by the text.

Aaaaaahhhhhhhh....

thanks Michael, I was trying to end the HTML code in some way.. but you don't need to.

Blockquote Comment 208 by Rob Schneider Didn't you just answer your own question??? They fear loss of power, loss of assets, loss of sexual access. The initial cause of this subjugation over the years was not religion, but as conditions eased to the point where a different arrangement could be contemplated, religions loaded up the rhetoric to justify and maintain the cushy status quo for men.

No, Rob, I don't think I did!!!!!

As I said, they may fear the loss of power and assets and access, that is not the same thing as fearing women themselves, and it's not what Paula wrote. She wrote "The truth is that the Abrahamic religions fear women ...", not "The truth is that the Abrahamic religions fear loss of power of women...". Can I be any clearer than that?
