Crakr, a word of warning to you... You're a great user on IAB, you make the site more colourful and interesting and you submit great content. But every time you try to derail millenia of scientific advancement, I promise, I will be right there waiting for you and people like you. Call it a punch in the face if you will, but to quote that classic movie, frankly my dear, I don`t give a damn.
You proudly call yourself a skeptic. You know who else are skeptics? The people who think 9-11 was orchestrated by the Bush Administration, and the mentalists who don`t believe we landed on the moon. Skepticism is easy. Science is hard.
I`ll be waiting on the next thread, Crakr. This one is cold.

Look, I spent 7 years in university learning science. As you know, I have a First Class Honours degree and a PhD. Heck, to be a dick about it, it's Dr. Davymid. I`ve earned my stripes. What are you? A layman, with internet access, who thinks you know better than I do about science.
Here comes the Clue-Train, last stop, you. You don`t.
I note with amusement that you accuse me of being a Christianphobe, when you`re the most hate-filled Islamophobe that I`ve ever met. I hate neither Christians nor Muslims. I hate people like you.

I have a stake in the game, I have a child. You (presumably, from your posts) don't. Science has given us as a species everything that makes life good. The jet engine. The internet. Medicine. Plastics. We can live videochat over optic fibre cables instantaneously from opposite sides of the planet. All thanks to the scientific reasoning of humans.
When YOU try to derail that scientific advancement, talking sh*te out of your arse on how "evolution is a lie" or "AGW is dead", again, forgive me if I take the word of hundreds of thousands of professional scientists who say otherwise.

Oh, stop being a twat, will you?
I have no problem with people's personal religious faith. I have a problem when disingenuous, dishonest, or downright ill-informed laymen espouse scientific lies. Because some people might actually believe you.
Look, I have many friends and professional work colleagues (scientists) who are Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, and many others. They ALL get on with their lives while trusting in man-millenia of scientific research that evolution happens, we are having an effect on the global climate, the planet is over 4 billion years old, and all the rest.
You, on the other hand, keep spreading downright dirty lies. And that`s all they are. Lies.
