LVQ, if you have folks that you trust who also seem to think you are being interpreted a certain way, I would consider it. I don’t want to tell you how to post and you are a grownup and can make your own decisions, but the “speaker” needs to understand how he is perceived by his audience. If he thinks things should be taken a certain way, but they are not, then the speaker may need to change tactics.

Ohh I absolutely hear you. However, I am not going to pretend that evil has a messenger, and neither should anyone else. Now that is a pure moralistic argument. People don’t like it because it shines a light on them. And you are correct, that upon hearing that, they will get defensive and refuse to listen to the science.

However, as has been pointed out, the evidence for evolution has been out there for over 100 years. Many people in this nation still deny it. The true consequences of this and the sense of personal responsibility to act must be brought home to anyone and everyone who will listen. I have said my piece on this. It need not be repeated.

I will stick to just the science and and the consequences of the science.

To repeat, we start seriously changing course in this decade and drastically reduce fossil fuel emission, world wide, in the next two or three decades or, billions die in a global catastrophe that will cause the collapse of our civilization as we know it, mass extinctions and a damaged Earth that will take thousands of years to recover - which is to say thousands of years before it could support a population like today’s again.
