	Gosh, your attitude speaks volumes.

	Just in passing: http://www.bible.ca/dp-silhouette.htm quotes
you as saying,

	"We do not claim to have found truth, but seek it. I think we
	need to teach both evolution and creation so that people can
	make rational, objective decisions and decide for themselves
	which is better"

In view of this, have you considered adding a link to
http://www.ooblick.com/text/patton/index.html
[The URL has moved. This text reflects the new location. -- AA, May 9, 2012]
so that people may see the context of some of the quotations and make
their own decisions? I'll even add <A NAME=...> tags so that you can
link directly to individual quotations, if you like.

	I've just checked my webmaster mail, and I don't see anything
from bible.ca. Are you sure you sent it to the right address?

	If you updated your page on or before Feb. 7, then it took a
full two weeks for the change to propagate to where I'm sitting. You
may want to have a word with your ISP.

	Oh, by the way: the "Let us know" link in the disclaimer that
you've recently added to the top of
http://www.bible.ca/dp-fossilman.htm
is broken. You may want to fix it.
	Are you going to add a similar disclaimer to each of the
subpages? If so, you may want to consider its effect on readers. I
mean, would you buy from a bakery that had a sign saying, "We have
never been convicted of putting arsenic in our bread"?

	I've updated

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I get the impression you haven't actually
_read_ it. May I suggest that you do so?

	Let's see...
	I've quoted Dean Falk's article.
	I marked in bold the part that Patton quotes in his talk.

	If this is my worst case of deception, then I must be doing
pretty well!
