that business was directed at me, and i think i appropriately took a pass on it. we do have bible and religion/science fora here, and i've debated faith many, many times in the past. it doesn't particularly bother me at all, and in that particular forum, creation/evolution in the news, and the specific thread which is precisely about a debate that took place between a "bible assuming" standpoint and a scientific standpoint, i don't even think a reply about religion would have been out of place or off-topic. it was just a one liner, so whatever.
If this is now going to become an issue, after many months of making such references and its not being an issue, I'm simply going to leave. If creationists aren't allowed to reason as we reason about these things, there's no point in being here at all. And it was certainly no "rant," it was a perfectly straightforward comment.
i don't think it was a rant, and i doubt it will be a problem. that's your standpoint, your point of view, your argument. and it's not exactly uncommon.
the creationist argument, for most, is by definition mixing faith and science. and if we can't take the creationist argument here of all places, we're in bad shape.
