Hi and welcome. You mentioned "I know you guys want to keep this forum strictly scientific so I will try to avoid this in future, if I fail then I understand the consequences from the forum rules, I just wanted to explain where I am coming from." and that's something that's often misunderstood about EvC. It's not that it is strictly a science forum but rather that when in one of the science areas, or when making an assertion about scientific issues, you will be expected to use science and evidence to support your assertions.

There are plenty of places here where science takes a back seat to belief, just as there are areas here where belief carries no weight.

We hope you enjoy your stay here and look forward to learning from you.
