in response to reader comment: evolution

Dear Vicki,

as I said I do hold with the theory of evolution, but your own posting seems to admit that we cannot definitivley state it as fact (reproducability in a lab etc..). It is something for which a whole lot of proof exists and is therefor reasonable to believe, this has been my position all along.

sorry for being such a pedantic pain:-)

Abdul Rahman.

p.s. your point about the more we learn the less we feel we know is absolutely true in my opinion. and as an historian, I love the quote from Metrodorus.
