I would also point out that my "homework" has taken me over a year to post 24 times

Almost 2 years, in fact (Joined: 08-07-2012

But it doesn't appear you learned much in that time ...

Can you define evolution? can you describe what the theory of evolution is? can you describe what the difference between abiogenesis and evolution is? can you describe what the difference between 'macro' and 'micro' evolution is?

I doubt it ... but you could prove me wrong ...

Enjoy

It is this skill of skepticism and cross checking that I hope to instill in people I know who believe in a YE. ...

I advocate a policy of open-minded skepticism -- openly willing to consider another persons position\argument while at the same time being skeptical of it, looking for evidence pro and con to better understand the validity of the position.

And, importantly, being as skeptical of your own beliefs as you are of others and open to the idea that you may be wrong.

... What I also find is guarded enthusiasm over the fact that what is being learned might allow more discoveries from old bones than ever thought possible. In essence I find cautious enthusiasm rather than unhappiness.

Science often thrives on being wrong, of finding things that were not expected.

Indeed. Rather than a "eureka moment" new finds usually elicit the comment " ... that's curious ... "

Enjoy
