First of all, this has nothing whatsoever to do with alt.atheism
and I doubt if it has much to do with the other newsgroups you're
cross-posting to, either:
You know very well that evolution is not a belief, but the label
given to a set of observations that won't disappear even though
liars like you and Oakland try to deny them out of existence.
Would you care to explain just how, if there is no such thing as
evolution, science has gone on in the last hundred or more years
to investigate the mechanisms behind it, and how those mechanisms
work? And how spinoff sciences and technologies which simply
wouldn't exist without the facts that are called "evolution"m
work the way they do if there's no such thing? You know, little
things like genetics, genetic engineering etc - without which
modern meedicinne and agriculture wouldn't exist in the form
Would you also care to explain why more Christians (numerically)
than atheists accept the facts of evolution even in the educationally

If he "believed" in evolution he should not have been allowed to
teach any of the sciences. Because nobody needs to "believe" it
any more than they need to "believe" the Earth orbits the Sun.
