The evidence is overwhelming. DNA sequencing has repeatedly (thousands of times) shown that we are apes who evolved from ancient apes. How long will it take before the god-soaked learn how to accept basic facts of science?

Less than five minutes after I copied and pasted this excellent answer, the Yahoo crybabies deleted the whole thing.

You need to read up on the problem that confronts people who are "in denial".

in denial
> a psychological defense mechanism postulated by Sigmund Freud, in which a person
is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it ...

Hundreds of frequent users on R&S face this quandary.

> a state of perplexity or uncertainty over what to do in a difficult situation.

On the one hand they have a Bible - written in profoundly ignorant times, two to four thousand years ago! - and on the other, the mountains of scientific evidence which support the *fact* of evolution.

Forced to make a choice, they find themselves having to think just like ignorant Middle-Eastern shepherds who lived thousands of years back, when little or no science of any kind had been brought to light.

Devoted Christians need your sympathy, not your impatience. They are in the impossible situation of having to choose between their ancient faith and the real world of the 21st century.

And you can take that statement to the bank, since it is the truth - in spite of what any believer has to say about it.

    For some strange reason I have no sympathy for lunatics who brainwash children. Excellent answer by the way. Many thanks.
