I believe it's fine for us to express our opinions on subjects about which we 
disagree in our individual ways. However, if we start to debate evolution 
versus religion, then I think (or maybe, I believe) that we need to start 
another thread, if not indeed a separate forum, list, or whatever. 

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we're all here for the same reason: that 
amorphous THAT (which is TDE, Linux, free software, etc.), and I hope that 
our common interest in THAT doesn't get derailed by disputes. 

Anyway, I am comfortable with my own beliefs, and do not feel the need to 
bring enlightenment to others (unless of course they beg me to teach them, 
and offer YUGE sums of cold hard cash).
