       I also had to bite a bullet. It didn't quite have my brain in fully
rational mode.
 My problem was that I seem to require more proof that God exists than I need
for the proof of Evolutionary theory. Interesting, but I think that I maybe
justified in my view. ?.
       I does point out that my belief that evolutionary theory is based to a
degree on 'faith' in the absence of irrefutable proof. This is something that
I can honestly say I have not thought about.
       Perhaps my reasoning is that any opposing views to evolution are so
absurd that they don't deserve consideration.
