It's not a versus. Evolution IS a religion:
2. a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by
a number of persons or sects:...

"Evolution", as taught, is not subject to proof. As taught it's all based on
theories, aka beliefs. Micro-evolution is without question real and provable,
but micro-evolution is not taught as distinguishable from the other 6 types of
unprovable evolution, such as that which says dinosaurs and man did not coexist.
Technically, it's arguably true that dinosaurs didn't, because "dinosaur" is a
word originally created during the 19th century. Before then, the creatures
since referred to as dinosaurs were called dragons, and there has been found
much art on the walls of caves and elsewhere created many tens of centuries ago
that indicate man was interacting with living dragons.

One of my reasons to reply was to highlight the unending inane off-topic threads
about coffee, chocolate & dinosaurs polluting this list and its archive. If
dinosaurs are OK, then anything should go. I'd like to see OT stuff keep to a
minimum or less.
