So is piles according to the prophet Mohammed but then you are not that keen on figs if I remember rightly...

[EDIT] Bearing in mind that syrup of figs is a laxative it suddenly dawns on me that the comment attributed to the prophet Mohammed is not as bizarre as I first thought. Figs would be good for haemorrhoids and piles!!

I agree with you about Dawkins up to a point - but personally i found he was a great starting point. If one has doubts about belief the best point from which to start one's search for a truth is from certainty, and work from there. I found it lead to questioning my experience of religion and the effect it had on myself and those around me, and to expand my knowledge.

Don't get me wrong. I have read The Selfish Gene and The Greatest Show on Earth both of which I found insightful but The God Delusion is a step too far. It is really a polemic and takes the argument past reason and onto opinion and without much validation. I did not really understand why he got so intemperate. In many ways is fails like Spitzer and Feser by going over the top. Like Feser and Spitzer it reaches as far as the edge of reason and takes that step too far (IMHO) into the chasm of superstition (fantasy for atheists).

Bellatori: Jesus cursed the fig and the christian priest educating Mohamed also mentioned it...It does not take a theological genius to see the faults in the Qu- ran...

so to question evolution as not a 'certainty' would be fine

Absolutely.... stupid but fine... have you considered asking which way is up?

Bellatori - he may have gone over the top, but how can disbelief in a deity be a step too far, when belief in one is not?

You clearly did not read/appreciate my previous post. Questioning is the underpinning of science. That does not equate to agnosticism. There comes a point when scepticism becomes polemic. This is pointless.

I refer you again to my previous comment...

Bellatori says:
Again I refer you to my previous post. It is possible to go past reason and indulge in polemic. This is a step off the cliff worthy of those theists such as Feser and etc...

Spin says: " Evolution is no more than a concept applicable to the righteous and knowledgable... "

You use righteous and knowledgeable as though they were equivalent. Not in my book

Quibble.

I am equally 'certain' if you put up 'evidence' he will look at it dispationately. I doubt if you or any other theist would do the same and be as open minded.

Childish and repeated quibble." As before ...

Present some evidence a scientist can analyse impartially, DB.

I have a sneaking suspicion his methodology and execution is going to be a tad more exacting and meticulous than yours.
