The any claims of someone having an agenda are purely subjective, and have no basis in verifiable fact?

Basis? Well, claims do have a basis in something "factual". Something stimulates a person to make a claim. But a claim is not factual unless it is backed up with a fact. I can claim water boils at 35 degrees Fahrenheit, but until I add the fact that this occurs at low pressure you shouldn't believe me.

Do you take exception to attribution of motives or pursuit of an agenda, presented as fact and attributed to "evolutionists"?
