I haven't seen anyone touting creationism so far. Everyone but you

I have forty years of experience solving complex problems. I just
recently turned my attention to the immune system. Are you saying that I am
forbidden to discuss the shortcomings of the immune system because my own
immune system has some of the same shortcomings?

What is more scientific than a discussion of the evolution of the
immune system? The immune system is like a fort without a moat, drawbridge,
or porticullis. There is an evolutionary reason for every one of its
weaknesses, and it is important to discuss them. Good grief!
