Time Out
d**m it people, can we get back to my OP already.
Agreed. A quick scan through this thread has led me to believe that the topic has been all over the place and has now become a generic evolution thread. The thread needs a timeout whilst its participants consider the topic. If, after it reopens, morality and charity are still not the primary focus of discussion suspensions might be required. The current offtopic subthreads can either be taken to another thread or a new topic can be proposed.
Comments to the apt thread in my sig. Thanks.

Let the topic be addressed!
Off topic posts about the evidence (or lack thereof) for evolution in general will result in temporary suspensions (after a short grace period to allow you to read this message and edit if necessary).
For those who haven't even looked at the OP, it can be summed up with:
In the Biological evolution forum, the topic "intended mutations" ended up into a partial debate about how morality and charity fit in with the evolutionary model.
Please stick with continuing the debate about how morality and charity fit (or don't fit) into the evolutionary model. Thank you for your consideration. Comments etc, to the normal place (link in my sig)

Topic: morality, charity according to evolution
Your subtitle is good. What I have a problem with is the body of your message which seems to be about the history of marriage with reference to the twenty fourth session of the Council of Trent.
I don't see reference to morality, charity or evolution. I can only assume you are replying to a specific post, but it is not clear. If that is the case, then you might find that the little blue/green reply button on the post you are replying to will clear that up.
Marriage is tangentially related to the topic, so you haven't gone off the wall, I understand - just a friendly bit of advice for keeping our threads tidy and focussed. To be honest, if you are interested in the topic, it would make a fantastic discussion in its own right - you could propose a new topic on it.
