    The Theory of Evolution is not the opposite of the Hypothesis of Creation, but the opposite of blind faith.

    Evolution by natural selection vs belief that life, the Earth, and the universe are the creation of a supernatural being: One science, the other blind ignorant faith.

    What strikes me is that the Conservatives in the US, in order to win elections, have accepted the entire social agenda of the conservative religions without examining the ultimate cost, which is a theocratic domination of their movement. If your political beliefs cannot win elections without a compromise of the very soul of your beliefs, then maybe you might want to examine them for the electoral flaw, rather than sell your soul to the devil, which is exactly what has happened.

    Once again reminded that opposites are usually not the best solution to the problems caused by either end of a particular dichotomy:

    Per the good Dr. Asimov: If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them.
