The Evolution Debate Continues...

After several months of silence someone found an article I wrote back in May of 2009 on Dr. Francis Collins and the issue of Evolution and decided to leave a comment, which I was notified of via email. This led to a bit of a 'dialogue' on the whole issue in the comments section, which may still be continuing as I wait to see if more comments are yet posted. I bring this up to any of my readers would might be interested in the subject, as you would not know of this (since it is a past article out of view) and I wanted to see what any of you thought of the recent conversation. These 'conversations' have happened in the past on the Northwoods Seelsorger, and it is interesting to witness the mood and emotions of the debate from both sides of the isle. Without becoming too defensive, I seem to sense a bit of condescension on the part of evolutionists, especially as they try ever so deftly to inform those of other views that they are somehow illogical, backwards, narrow-minded and misinformed. The debate is closed, they claim, and the conclusive vote is in: evolution won hands down (it even was decided in a court of law, no less!). So why are we still debating it then? Why do they even care what we think? Inquiring minds want to know....
