Oh good, it's not just me. :-{ So it was probably just coincidence that it arrived right after my post. Or was it divine providence? Cue Twilight Zone theme.

Well Mo, they also probably thought from my surname I've fairly relaxed and chilled out.

I got those e-mails as well, I thought it was just me! One about 'what happened to the dinosaurs?' (well, the non-avian ones went extinct and the rest we call birds), and the other about apes and monkeys. Both ended with the same point though: evolution is wrong, the Bible is right. If it were a real person sending the e-mail, rather than a robot that gleaned our e-mail addresses off our blogs or others we comment on, they should've realised that by looking at my surname, there's no way that I would be a Christian bible-basher: I'm more likely to be Muslim, or even an atheist heathen :p.

Thanks Sean. I'm not sure how much grace I had. I always find it awkward to openly state disagreement with a worldview I find unbelievable, because no matter how I phrase it, it feels like it comes out rude. Must be my Canadian nature.

Here's where it hurts -- whoever wrote that comment was assuming that it was a compliment to describe what you, or what you were doing, as a gift of god.

Hey, I can sympathize with that. When you run across something you find genuinely admirable there is a real temptation to give some credit to divinity.

But for those of us who can't subscribe to that paradigm, well...

How do you tell someone who is sincere in their feelings that you don't agree with them? You handled it with real grace in the initial post -- but it didn't seem to do the job.

And now you get emails...
