Do you consider a quote from one evolutionist, who was in no way involved in the development of the theory, to be definitive proof of the validity of conclusions drawn about the theory and the motives of it's authors? The quote from the evolutionist is no better than the evidence upon which it is based, and that evidence is not there

Actually I mean the inverse of what you said. I am not addressing Well's comment - I am addressing the Evo retorts. If one person in the Evolution field is anti-religion, one can not logically or validly say "Evolution is not anti-religion". You do understand this is a matter of opinion on both sides?

That is the only point I am making.

If you quantify the Evo retort your might have a valid statement.

Then it is no less valid to say that as long as on person in the Creationist field is anti-science you cannot logically say that "Creationism is not anti-science." I understand it is a matter of opinion on both sides, but I don't consider conclusions drawn from the personal opinions of a single source to be of any particular value. It would be just as valid for me to make sweeping generalizations about Christianity based on the words and actions of Jim Jones.

That is the only point I am making.

My response to Mr. Well's argument is every bit as quantified as his original assertions.
