    Gee, sorry for giving you a watered-down version instead of the most detailed definition in the universe. My apologies for ruining you day.

    Well, I didn't, so I guess that's just the way you saw it.

    I'll go edit that right now, too, and make it oh-so-politically-correct! *skips off merrily*

    Glad to see the rules i posted are proving helpful.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Whoa, this is spinning out of control.

    The only reason I care about this issue is because school boards in some backwards locations are actually pushing non-scientific theories as science upon helpless school children who don't know the difference.

    Religion is a personal issue, and it's not really the subject of this debate. The origin of species as a factual matter, and the teaching of real science is the issue. Religion has no place in science, and science doesn't trump religion. That's why they've been kept separate all these years, and why they should stay that way. We are undermining the credibility of future generations of Americans by teaching them junk science that is really religion in a thin disguise. Real Universities, research institutes, pharmeceutical companies, and anyone else that hires scientists are going to scoff at students who've been taught creationism in place of science.

    Personal beliefs and "greater truths" are the proper domain of religion. Science is about hard, cold facts. They are not substitutes for one another.

    There are many different kinds of hermaphrodite, and they're usually infertile as one sex, if not both. Both sex organs are rarely fully formed, if ever.

    Besides, most of human evolution is basically over with in the conventional sense. That's what happens once you start modifying your environment rather than adapting to it. Things will develop medically, technologically, culturally... but in human society few if any traits are more useful than others in allowing someone to survive long enough to create offspring. If anything we're devolving because now negative traits are rarely weeded out (no, I'm not advocating eugenics here... just speaking objectively).

    I believe the only conventional evolution we're currently undergoing is that our bodies are putting less and less energy into unnecessary features (like the jaw thing she mentioned, if it's true).
