  Note:  This thread contains material on creationism.  Creationism is a
fantasy, not a theory, nor a fact, entirely uncontaminated by such base
material considerations as 'evidence' or 'proof', and as such should be
treated with *extreme* caution, as the tendency of the human mind to engage
in wish-fulfillment by means of self-delusion is well documented.
