Everytime I see his username the Rod Stewart song starts playing in my head. I find that it counters the vitriol found in most of his posts.

What they fail to recognize is that I have taken all of those 101 courses.
If you had taken 20th Century Russion History 101 you would have known about Lysenkoism and how Stalin used his political power to remove evolution from the schools.
Just because I pass a course doesn't mean that I agree with all the conclusions drawn by them.
Two problems here. First, you regularly disagree on the facts, not the conclusions. Secondly, you often misrepresent what the conclusions actually are. That's the problem. We can't have a worthwhile conversation if we disagree on the facts, and if you don't understand what our actual position is. You don't have to agree with us to understand what we are saying.
Their are so myopic in their thinking because they only talk to people who generally agree with them on these issues. They haven't been exposed to cogent, coherent arguments to the contrary. Because of this, they are unaware that there are other valid positions to be taken on many of the issues brought up here and that leads them to conclude that those who disagree with them are just simply ignorant.
You assume incorrectly. I can almost guarantee that Dwise1 knows more about creationism than you do. Many of us know quite a bit about creationism, creationists, and the history of the lies they tell. What you are unaware of is the reasons why creationism is not a valid scientific position. We do.
You guys don't even realize that you have been indoctrinated.
Strangely enough, you have failed to muster any evidence that demonstrates that the theories taught in graduate schools are wrong. You can scream about brainwashing, indoctrination, group think, and the rest but it falls on deaf ears if you lack the evidence.
Start with the evidence. Don't start with a feigned persecution complex or a kooky conspiracy theory. Again, START WITH THE EVIDENCE AND STAY WITH THE EVIDENCE. That is all we ask.
