These are exciting times - wasting it on debates with people who you would normally never even know existed, as they operate completely out of your sphere, is a futile excercise.

We don't do it for them. The entire mission of these science threads -- aside from the unexpected delight of having met scores of bright, talented, and conservative scientists and engineers working in academia and industry, plus a huge number of others who are highly educated and appreciative of science -- is to demonstrate to the lurkers (there are 669 views of this thread and only 23 posts) that there are conservatives, loads of them, who aren't anti-science idiots.

PH, your post #24, is most excellent..glad that you posted those numbers...puts to rest, the notion that a lot of scoffers have tried to spread around, that there are very few lurkers..indeed if your numbers are any indication, there are volumes of lurkers...

Add me in the lurker group, PH...I've learned more on these threads than I could have possibly imagined. It switched me from "unsure" to "confident" in regards to evolution.

For the record -- it is liberals and liberal propaganda that posits conservatives are anti-science.
