Sure, enough. The problem, as you point out, is that lots of
(presumably) sincere critics of evolution have little idea that their
"refutations" have been considered ad infinitum.
It seems to me that this is one more piece of evidence that this group
needs moderation. Another admittedly unpalatable alternative is to get
rid of bionet.molbio.evolution, and move discussions to
sci.bio.evolution. I'd rather see that done than to see one of the
bionet newsgroups wrecked by persistent pseudoscientific and anti-scientific
