I don't think it is a good idea to flame every person who has trouble believing
or understanding evolution. I'm sure that there is a percentage of netters who 
write to this group that believe evolution is farce. I am also sure, though, 
that a percentage of them are writing to this group to try and learn what it's 
all about. As an educated scientist and one who studies molecular evolution, I 
think the more appropriate response is to try and enlighten these writers 
rather than burn them! (Just my humble opinion)
