Your grandmother is splendidly sagacious. YOu think someone who says athiests should "get out of her way" is wise? (no offense to my grandmother, but she is not wise.) Probably smart and knowledgable enough to remember science has virtually proven many things which subsequently history has made laughable. Blood humors and phrenology and geocentrism, and even not long ago that the universe is speeding up, and not slowing down as has been taught until very recently. First of all, I'm not trying to dis my grandmother, but has not read alot about this and no, she doesn't remember a history of science. You're comparisons arn't balanced. Comparing blood humors to evolution is just silly. Brooks, I thought you were a smart conservative, but here you seem to be a little ill-informed. They have proved evolution to beyond a reasonable doubt. Evolution is proved. No christian fundamentalists can deny what science proves. ID hasn't even been tested by the rules of science. More than that, guess what ID revolves around: "evolution is wrong." Consensus does not prove factuality. True, but consensus, when scientifically proven does indeed prove factuality. When everyone said the earth was flat, that was an example of consesus not proving factuality. They had no proof. But when scientists study something for over a century, yes, census proves factuality. Because it is based on facts.
