??? you see it on this board every other day ...

I wasn't referring specifically to evolution. That is a very esoteric subject, and suffers (IMO) from the inability of anyone other than a specialist to really understand it due to the amount of study needed to grasp the intricacies. Even more general stuff like the gw charts showing global temperatures going up at approximately the same rate as ghg's are being emitted (with a 20-yr or so lag, as I recall). It's a graph. A picture. The line has positive slope, and seems to correlate to other pictures with similar lines. Could be a red herring, but based on what facts would I say that?

Maybe it's even more of a "which specialist do I listen to" thing. Do I listen to the guy trained in an ancient, unchanging book, or do I listen to the tens of thousands of guys trained in an area of scientific inquiry that do radical things like gather and analyze data?

I really don't think I'm expressing myself well. It would be easy to get bogged-down in minutia of gw or evolution or whatever. My question is more general. It's a faith in the face of facts thing. I inquired of JB because he apparently made a more radical conversion than I did, and maybe he'd have some insight that I don't. But maybe my question didn't make sense to him either.
