Hear, Hear!

I saw those letters as well in the paper and had meant to write my own letter. Unfortunately I haven't gotten around to it yet. I have written in the past, but it has been a while. Anyway, I hope you did as well as writing in this blog. I do believe that science will prevail, but not without a struggle. I would like to know if those that oppose stem cell research had a nice turkey for Thanksgiving. I'll bet they didn't think anything about taking the life of a full grown, sentient being. But of course, it wasn't human, hence not divine.

I saw the 60 minutes segment on Plan B.

Generally, I am against the use of abortion as a birth control method although I acknowledge exceptions, such in the case of rape, for example.

IMO, Plan B should be available over-the-counter because I think that in the long-run, it will prevent more abortions than it will cause and the birth of many unwanted children.

However, I think there should be an age limit on its availability, say 16 or so.

Lastly, I think the religious right needs to get out of dream land and acknowledge that abortion, birth control, and the like are here to stay in one form or another.

IMO, keeping abortion safe and legal (except for partial birth abortions, which I believe need to be outlawed because of the pain they inflict on the unborn child), along with the latest methods of birth control, may actually lower the abortion rate in the long run.

For the record, Plan B does not cause or result in abortion; it is high dose birth control (estrogen and progesterone hormones)which taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse will hopefully prevent conception.

These comments obviously come from someone who does not understand the difference between Micro-Evolution (the process by which physical characteristics change without becoming more complex) and Macro-Evolution (when organisms change and become more complex) the difference is almost always ignored.

To understand the difference go here

It always makes me laugh when Evolutionists try to ignore modern science, Evolution died years ago. When you think about it if it did happen every race on the planet would have died during the transition process, or as one creationist (and former evolutionist) put it "If a leg of a reptile were to evolve into a wing of a bird, it would become a bad leg long before it became a good wing".

Sorry, my link got messed up, go to http://www.creationscience.com/ .

He calls those googled searches evidence? It says those fossils show changes in what they would expect of a transitional or intermediate form.
Show us the change from fin to leg for example and not the change in the leg itself you would expect if it had evolved from a fin
