OK, I don’t “believe” in evolution, however, I find the evidence overwhelmingly convincing.

Perry is correct that there are some gaps in evolution theory when it comes to humans. The official story of how it happened does not quite add up causing legitimate doubt. What natural selection can not explain is why humans, and only humans one time, evolved advanced intelligence unnaturally fast and far in excess of that needed to find food and shelter. Why are there no significant variations on a theme in humans left, only one species? Why did the descendants of the first tribe that discovered religion go on to take over the whole world, out-competing the nonreligious Neanderthals? I'm not saying there are no viable scientific explanations for these oddities, just that the official story has gaps and does not add up, and people are more than justified in rejecting it. There are many real world benefits in letting them. I'm not religious myself but I wish I was because the God advantage many people have is real.

Seems to me that believing in evolution requires just as much faith as believing in creationism.

Regarding Jon-boy, his grasp of science does not extend beyond what he read in grade school in his Weekly Reader.
