    AE, Let me ask you this. When you have a condition and you go to the doctor for diagnosis and treatment, do you care if the doctor is from Russia, Morroco, England, America or India? Do you care if the doctor is a woman or a man? Religious or not? No. All you care to know is that the doctor had excellent training and skills in order to analyze your symptoms logically according to proper scientific studies. This knowledge should minimize the chances for giving you the wrong medicine or tretament. The same thing here. Rejecting evolution and global warming is rejecting the science that you and I depend on every day in our lives. When you support Mr. Avital's freedom to contradict scientific evidence based on standards of social fairness, you are making your opinions irrelevant to any logical discussion.
