According to him at the univeristy where he worked some lecturers had also given up on the "theory" of evolution, (which it is) yet were still teaching it even though they no longer believed it. That's not an atitude but a fact. I have bought several books since then which confirmed this view among some scientists - but I didi not say all. But it reminds me of what either David Hume or Kant said: just because a ball bounces the same way a hundred times out of a hundred doesn't mean it will bounce that way the next time. I take this to mean that while something appears to confirm something it does not make it right. The sun rose this morning but will it rise tomorrow? Maybe but no-one can be sure. I am not an expert but I have read widely and know what I believe. It is not for me to convince you one way or the other. That's my last word on the subject. I am not sure I understand your position on this. There are experts on both sides of the fence so to speak, regarding evolution. I am Christian, yet believe the contrast between evolution and the Bible is not a deficiency in either, but the inability of us in our limited understanding to reconcile the two.
