I'm very sorry to all who have grown tired of this exchange, but I just
can't let ignore this latest post by my friend Neil from across the ocean:

Well, actually it is possible to propagate a lie even if you don't realize
that it is indeed a lie.  I contend that all it has to be is FALSE.  You're
right - it is patently obvious that I am not going to convince you of this.
The melting of hardened hearts is yet another thing that falls into the
divine realm - I am powerless alone.

You have produced no such evidence.  You may think that your evolution posts
have presented some stunning evidence, but you are mislead.

Believe it or not, I wasn't addressing whether or not this bothers you.  I
was addressing how silly it is for a piece of organic meat to sit around and
discuss how much wisdom it has and how much knowledge it has of the origin
of species.  It's ludicrous.  Apparently, you don't see it...

I have no idea of what you are referring to as far as "the last time", but
again you must think that we've debated this issue and that you have won
some sort of victory.  Sorry, but I have never debated this issue with you,
nor do I intend to.  I don't need to convince you of anything - I'm only
supposed to be a reminder of where you should choose to turn when your tower
of Babel falls to pieces.  Just call on His name.  He's waiting.

Actually, I have all of the evidence I need - I just haven't chosen to share
it with you.  I must say, however, that if you think the Peppered Moth
provides some overwhelming evidence of evolution, then I know that there is
no need for me to debate this with you anyhow.  Talk about rubbish.  That's
not even an example of mutation.  Try again.

No, on second thought - don't.

No, actually the peace of God is absolute.  What's going on in Northern
Ireland is of man - another screwup wrongly being attributed to God.
