You're telling us that you do know better?
You're just playing word games, Sonnike.

Thanks, Chavalon. Much more concise than I ever could have been!

The Origin of Species, Darwin avowed, To suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree possible.
OH, NOOOOOOO! The dreaded Darwin "eye" quote! Run for your lives!!!
Seriously, blanko: have you ever heard of the term "rhetorical question?" You are dealing with one here. You need to find the rest of the paragraph that this resided in originally, and read it. For comprehension. And don't try to argue by out-of-context quotes like that: you'll get shot down.

belicose?? is that a made up word?
Try bellicose - from the Latin bellus, IIRC. Means warlike or argumentative. I prefer folks that are callipygian, but you can never tell that online.
